Pacifica School Volunteers is a nonprofit organization designed
to support and enrich the education and well-being of children
in Pacificas public schools, and to strengthen ties between
families, community and the schools. We believe that when
the number of responsible adults invested in the schools increases,
that both the schools and the community benefit.
School Volunteers was awarded the International Reading
Association's Celebrate Literacy Award, the Starbucks Bay
Area Grants for Giving and the San Mateo County Children's
Report Award for "Helping Children Succeed in School".
We Need Volunteers
In every classroom there is at least one child who could
benefit from the extra attention of a volunteer working with
him or her on reading, math or other subjects. Studies show
that this individual attention is beneficial to the academic
and emotional well-being of children. Evaluations by teachers
report that the children benefit from working with our volunteers
and show academic improvement.
also bring skills and expertise to the classroom. There
many ways to volunteer. The time commitment can vary from
a one time experience, to several visits, to once a week
a classroom. Click on Ways to Volunteer; below to find out
