Request a Volunteer Tutor

San Francisco Education Fund 

Volunteer Request Form

Thank you for submitting your request for an SFEF volunteer. Volunteers can be tutors, classroom assistants, Mindfulness instructors, or Mentors (through the District's Mentoring for Success program). Unfortunately, we typically have more volunteer requests than volunteers, so we cannot guarantee you will be provided with a volunteer. Each volunteer decides where they would like to help out and what they would like to do based on their own personal set of criteria. Making a formal request through our system, however, ensures that we will share your request with newly-cleared volunteers. That being said, we will do our best to fulfill your request. 

Due to the volume of requests we receive, we do not formally acknowledge each one but you can be confident that we will contact you promptly if a volunteer expresses interest.

NEXT STEPS: If a volunteer expresses interest in working in your classroom, an SFEF coordinator will email you wiht next steps. If you don't respond to our initial email within 1 week, the volunteer and coordinator will move onto another request. This is critical to receiving a volunteer.

If you have any questions, please email Tom Laursen.

IF YOU'VE ALREADY BEEN IN CONTACT WITH YOUR PAST VOLUNTEER, DON'T SUBMIT A REQUEST, JUST LET SFEF KNOW THE VOLUNTEER IS CONFIRMED VIA EMAIL.
