Become a Volunteer
You can play an important role in the success of San Francisco students! Teachers throughout the city request volunteers—we match you to them based on your skills, interests, and time commitment.
We place and support volunteers in all San Francisco public schools, but focus our efforts on a few Focus Schools that face the most challenges to student achievement.
Learn more and see a map of our Focus Schools here.
What do volunteers do?
How do I get started?
- Register for a Volunteer Information Session using the form below, the first required step to become an Education Fund school volunteer! At the info session you will learn more about the volunteer roles and opportunities to decide which one fits you best.
- Prepare for the clearance process by getting a TB test. A list of clinics offering free or low-cost tests can be found here. Note: TB test results are good for four years.
*Volunteers work with students and therefore need to pass a background check. To start the application process you must attend an info session. Learn more about the process in the FAQ.
Info sessions take place at our office unless otherwise noted. If you have any questions regarding volunteer clearance contact Tom Laursen 415.695.5400 x3024
