Berkeley Schools Volunteers

Berkeley Schools Volunteers

Change the world one classroom at a time through Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV), a program of the Berkeley Public Schools Fund.

With the return to in-person school, public school students need volunteer support NOW MORE THAN EVER!

BSV matches committed community members with teachers and staff in one of our 20 Berkeley Unified public schools - preschool through 12th grade, and the adult school. We build community-school partnerships that benefit student development and learning during this extraordinary time of challenge and isolation.

Volunteers are typically paired with a classroom and teacher and serve in a variety of helpful capacities for a few hours each week for the duration of the school year. Our volunteer matching is extremely customized to teachers' needs and volunteers' skills and interests.
