The SCUSD Volunteer Program believes that parents, grandparents, neighbors and community partners have a wealth of ideas and talents to share with our students and our schools. Volunteers help foster stronger school/community relationships by creating a common ownership in the success of our schools, as well as, demonstrating the importance of community service to our students.
Currently, SCUSD volunteers work in a variety of capacities: doing work from home; acting as tutors and mentors; providing assistance in the classroom; participating on District partnership teams and advisory boards; assisting in a school’s main office or library and organizing fundraising efforts.
Make a difference in the life of a child, volunteer!
