Friends of Redwood
We are a small, fairly new school foundation looking for a volunteer to help us. We were fortunate to have someone develop and activate our new website, but we need help. Looking for someone who can post things (photos, content, etc.) from time to time. It's not a lot of work, and perfect for someone who is looking to serve the community as a volunteer. Is Facebook your thing? We'd also love to have someone create a Facebook page for our organization. Please pm me if you would like to volunteer, or if you have any questions. Thank you!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Friends of Redwood

Our mission is to advance the promise of educational excellence to all students at Redwood High School through community building, and to secure the resources necessary to sustain enriched learning opportunities for all Redwood High School students. We
Friends of Redwood is the 501(c)3 education foundation for the students and graduates of the Sequoia Union High School District’s Redwood High School in Redwood City CA. In our geographical area most schools enjoy substantial financial support from parents as well as the community. Redwood’s population includes a large percentage of students with significant needs:
-92% are economically disadvantaged & qualify for free/reduced lunch programs.
-Over 50% will be the first generation in their family to graduate from high school.
-More than a quarter of Redwood students work after school to help support and/or provide child care for their families.
-4% are homeless.
Redwood does not have a PTA, mostly due to parent work schedules and the transitory nature of the student population. Even before the current crisis, many parents worked multiple lower income jobs to support the family.
