Join Our Team of One-Time Volunteers
We host 5 special events each school year powered by volunteers. Volunteer read aloud for a heritage month, help with back to school season, or tutor computer science. Volunteer opportunities also include campus beautification, career day guest opportunities, library support and more!
Please sign up below if you or your team are available to volunteer for one-time events. We will invite you to sign up for volunteer opportunities throughout the school year.
Annual Events & Volunteer Opportunities
Teachers have precious little time to prepare their classrooms before the first day of school in August. Pitch in to prep rooms and hallways so students come back to a clean and orderly space for learning! Check out these photos from previous events. This opportunity takes place in the three days before the first day of school every year. Learn more and sign up.
To celebrate diversity in literature and encourage a love of books, we host three Read-Ins every year. Hundreds of volunteers visiting schools across Oakland schools to read aloud with kids.
Learn more and sign up for our next Read-In.
Event Schedule and Linked Photos from Last Year
Along with OUSD and other partners, we help Oakland kids explore new opportunities in tech during Computer Science Education Week in December. We invite you to share your experience in the tech industry with students by visiting a school as a guest speaker, presenting a case study, or giving a demonstration. Check out our recap of last year’s events to get a better idea of the options. Learn more and sign up.
