Volunteering

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

Volunteers play a pivotal role in enhancing the overall learning experience for our students and fostering a positive school environment. The time you spend volunteering with students can have a huge impact on their self-esteem, behavior, academic achievement, and social development.  

Some individuals choose to interact directly with students “on the front lines” by volunteering in classrooms, tutoring, supervising lunches, or driving students on a field trip. Others choose to work “behind the scenes” in positions such as fundraising, public relations, or committee work, which benefit the entire District and students. 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.

Volunteering is also a wonderful way to learn more about AUSD, your child's school, and our educational program. This, in turn, will help you be a more informed, engaged, and supportive parent/guardian.

Safety and the well-being of our students is our top priority. Therefore we require volunteers to complete the volunteer agreement process. More information about the requirements for different types - or "levels" - of volunteering are available below. All forms are available to the right.
