Teachers are asking for volunteers to help them in their virtual classrooms

San Francisco Education Fund



There are close to 100 teachers in San Francisco public schools who have reached out to us to send them volunteers for their virtual classrooms. We would love to be able to fill every one of these requests but we need more volunteers to do so. If you are flexible in terms of grade level and subject and have one free hour a week we can do it! Teachers are being asked to do a tremendous amount this year and they deserve the help! Once you have attended a tutor training and have cleared to volunteer we will send you a list of all the teacher requests and you can select the one that appeals most to you. Most of the opportunities are in the elementary grades but we do have a handful at the middle school and high school level. Our teachers need your help any day, Monday through Friday.

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.


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. By acting as a bridge between the community and the classroom, the Education Fund increases the availability and impact of resources for students and teachers throughout San Francisco public schools.

Our integrated approach:

  • supports teachers with training and resources to enhance their classroom practice;
  • matches volunteer skills with teacher requests;
  • engages students to create positive changes in their schools;
  • unites families, service providers, businesses and others to build stronger school communities; and
  • informs district policy through community input and strategic partnerships.
