Sometimes a Student Needs Just a Little Bit of Help...

  • San Francisco, CA, US

The first step toward becoming a school volunteer is to attend a Volunteer Information Session. Use this link to register: http://www.sfedfund.org/getinvolved/volunteers.php

CLASSROOM VOLUNTEERS NEEDED There are opportunities in San Francisco's public schools to volunteer in every grade, kindergarten through high school, in almost all subjects: English, math, science, art, social studies, PE, music etc.

Here are some examples of actual requests teachers have made:

A 1st grade teacher asked for a volunteer to help with literacy. "It would be great to have a volunteer work with small groups and individual students doing tutoring, explaining directions and asking students questions to deepen their learning."

A 9th grade Math teacher said, "I have a very large Algebra 1 class and having a volunteer help students one-on-one or in small groups would be a great assistance. I have students that are highly motivated, but need assistance and encouragement in algebra."

Feel free also to call Tom Laursen at 415 695-5400 ext. 3024 if you have any questions at all.

You can, and will, make the difference!
