Do you remember who inspired you to love reading? Spark a love of books by reading with achild as a literacy volunteer in San Francisco public schools.

We are the San Francisco Education Fund, the nonprofit in charge of training and placing volunteers in San Francisco public schools. Each year, we receive dozens of requests from teachers asking for help for their students. Volunteers like you make a difference for schoolchildren at the K-3 level who need one-on-one or small group assistance in their reading and literacy skills.

No matter who you are or where you come from, you have something to share with San Francisco students. All it takes is one hour a week.

Mission Statement

The San Francisco Education Fund's programming focuses on one goal: improving student success in San Francisco public schools. Because no single effort can yield the results we seek, the Education Fund utilizes a multi-faceted approach focused on teachers, volunteers, students, and strategic partnerships. The Education Fund's ongoing research, policy and public engagement work spans all of our program areas.

Description

The San Francisco Education Fund believes that strong
public schools are critical to San Francisco's viability and that the community must take action to ensure their success.
