The Alameda Unified School District appreciates your interest in serving as a volunteer.

We are glad that you agree that educating children to help them reach their full potential is both an awesome and rewarding challenge. The time you spend volunteering with children and/or young people can have a huge impact on their self-esteem, behavior, academic achievement, and social development.  Since the youth of today will be the leaders of tomorrow, it is incumbent upon all of us to promote and facilitate their success in every way possible.

As part of an overall scholastic experience for both you and your child, the ability to volunteer in your child’s classroom, on a field trip, at lunchtime, study hall, etc., is inevitable.  At some point in your child’s school years, your assistance will be needed, and there are four different levels of volunteer service.  Each level has different requirements, as shown in the diagram below. 

  • Classroom Assistance
  • Tutoring
  • Coaching
  • Fundraising
  • Special Events/Field Trips
  • Mentoring
  • Provide Transportation
  • Meal Monitoring
  • Clerical/Technology
  • Public Relations


Some individuals choose to interact directly with students “on the front lines” by volunteering in classrooms, tutoring, or coaching.  Others choose to work “behind the scenes” in positions such as fundraising, public relations, etc., that benefit the entire District and students on a more global platform.  Regardless of which form or direction your volunteer services take, your generosity in donating time, assistance, and/or expertise is very much appreciated.   With the generous and caring support of volunteers such as yourself, the opportunities to meet the individual needs of each child are greatly increased.

Safety is one of our top priorities, and as such, we require all volunteers to complete a volunteer application. Please complete the application(s) in its entirety and return it to the school site office for processing.  If you are applying to volunteer in a coaching capacity, your paperwork will be forwarded to the Athletic Director for review.

If you have any questions regarding any aspect of the volunteer experience, please contact the site office staff for further information.  On behalf of our students and staff, all volunteer assistance is deeply appreciated.
