Target Students and Teachers
Additional Languages

The San Francisco Education Fund harnesses the power of the community to equip every child with the skills to succeed in college, career and civic responsibility.  Volunteers work in many capacities within San Francisco’s public schools: as one-on-one tutors, as classroom assistants and as non-academic mentors.  From math and English, to music and art, to technology, as library assistants and college and career counselors, our volunteers are there to give students that little bit of extra help they may need to reach their full potential.
