“More than anything else—even more than money—the time a volunteer spends with students is needed. The extra support is immeasurable.”
Volunteers in the Classroom
Volunteers Where You Need Them
The Education Fund places volunteers exclusively in positions requested by public school teachers and staff.
Each year the Education Fund recruits, trains, places and supports thousands of community and business volunteers in a wide range of roles.
Our job is to make the volunteer experience as effective and rewarding as possible for all people involved - student, teacher and volunteer.
