San Francisco Education Fund provides the following resources to support your success.
You will receive training on how to best engage with students and/or teachers and have a chance to ask any questions on your mind. For aspiring tutors for the literacy, math, and mindfulness programs, there will be additional training that provide guidance around session planning, activities, and effective practices. Volunteers will sign up for a training while applying.
The Ed Fund coordinators will also guide volunteers to pass a background check and provide proof that you have tested negative for tuberculosis as part of the school district’s requirements. At present, due to the pandemic, we are working with remote nurses who can help with this last medical clearance step.
Each volunteer has a point person coordinator from the Ed Fund who will provide ongoing support and check-ins. Before you get started, our coordinators will match you with the right opportunity based on if you are volunteering for literacy or math programs, mindfulness program, mentoring, or general classroom support.
