Mentor a San Francisco Public School Student

San Francisco Education Fund


Do you want to make a difference in the life of a student? Believe it or not, teachers request mentors for their students as often as they request subject matter tutors. To reach their full potential, young people need to know: there is someone who is interested in how they’re feeling; there is someone who is interested in what they’re doing; and there is someone who truly cares about them.

Mentors are needed in San Francisco public schools at all grade levels. The commitment is only one hour per week for one year. Many of our mentors find that meeting their buddy over lunch hour works really well. Only three hours of training is necessary; a sincere desire to help others is the most important requirement.

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.
