VOLUNTEER INFORMATION FOR SCHOOLS 

The Oakland Public Education Fund partners with OUSD to provide volunteer support to educators at every Oakland public school.

 

We support parents/guardians, community members, one-time volunteers, and groups that share their time and talents with Oakland students.

 

REQUEST VOLUNTEER SUPPORT 

The Oakland School Volunteers program recruits, screens, trains, and matches community members to support your school. Volunteers help maximize educator capacity and motivate student achievement. We are excited to connect your school with volunteers who are a great fit for your unique needs!

 

STEP 1: Choose the type of volunteer support that you need from the options below and fill out the corresponding form.

 

STEP 2: Please read the Expectations and Agreements for hosting a volunteer.

 

STEP 3: We will reach out to you to introduce you to your volunteer match ASAP. We do our best to fulfill every request, but this is not possible in every situation.

REQUEST A TUTOR OR AID

Ongoing community volunteers can support your school as tutors or aids. We match volunteers to educators based on the alignment of talents, skills, and interest to need.

REQUEST A CAREER COACH

Career coaches are vetted and trained to provide high school students with a patient, caring, and communicative support as students prepare for their futures.

 

Career coaches can amplify what your school is already doing to help students develop their college and career readiness.

REQUEST ONE-TIME HELP

You can request one-time volunteers to support your schools’ events. From family engagement events to mock interviews, we can connect your school with talented support.

 

Please give at least one month’s notice so we have time to recruit the right volunteer team for your school.

If you have questions, comments, concerns, or ideas, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Past feedback has helped us to make some big improvements over the years.

Thank you!
