Berkeley Schools Volunteers

Welcome to Berkeley Schools Volunteers!

A program of the Berkeley Public Schools Fund, Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV) has for three decades been connecting the expertise and resources in the larger Berkeley community to the needs of our public schools.

Berkeley Schools Volunteers offers two distinct volunteer pathways: Classroom Volunteers and School Support Volunteers.

BSV Classroom Volunteers work alongside BUSD Classroom Teachers. They provide individual attention to students, support with classroom management, and serve as role models to students of all ages. Classroom Volunteers are matched with BUSD Host Teachers and commit to at least one hour a week for the entire school year.

BSV School Support Volunteers support BUSD students, families, and staff outside of the classroom, based on needs identified by our school community. A wide range of volunteer opportunities are available, including both one-time events and ongoing commitments.
