Ed Hub Volunteers

What is the Ed Hub?

The Ed Hub is BUSD’s centralized distribution site for all things teaching & learning during school closure due to COVID-19. This drive-through site allows for BUSD students and their families to pull in, pick up essential learning supplies, and head back home while staying safely inside their car.  

Families come to the Ed Hub for technology needs (Chromebooks & accessories), curricular needs (learning packets), books, and school supplies.

The Ed Hub is open three days a week: Mondays 12-2pm, Wednesdays 3:30-5:30pm, and Fridays 12-2pm. The Ed Hub is located on the backside of the Berkeley Adult School, on the 1700 block of Curtis Street, between Virginia and Francisco. For more information and a map to the Ed Hub, click HERE.

What do Volunteers Do at the Ed Hub?

Ed Hub volunteers set-up the distribution site a half hour before it opens. Volunteers staff supplies tables (books, technology, curriculum, etc.) whey they connect families to any requested supplies. In this way, Ed Hub volunteers are the face of the district to our families.

There is always at least 1 Spanish-speaking volunteer on every Ed Hub shift.

What is Required of Volunteers at the Ed Hub?

As the Ed Hub is public-facing, volunteers wear mask and gloves at all times. Besides moving supplies from one place to another, the physical demands are rather light. Nevertheless, given its public nature, we discourage volunteers who are in any COVID risk categories from signing up for shifts.

How do I Sign Up?

To access the Ed Hub sign-up directly, first sign up to become a Berkeley Schools Volunteer. You will then have opportunities to sign up for shifts at the Ed Hub.
