Volunteer With Us
Many Opportunities for Students and Community Members to Volunteer
Community Member Volunteers
Non-students can be tutors in the classroom and help with registration.
Tutors in the Classroom
The San Mateo Adult School is looking for patient, friendly, and enthusiastic individuals to tutor English as a Second Language, Citizenship, Adult Secondary Education or 50Plus Program students in the morning, afternoon or evening at our various sites. Literacy Tutors work with students individually or in small groups in a teacher-supervised classroom setting. This is a rewarding opportunity to work with adults from diverse cultures who are pursuing life goals such as attaining citizenship, helping their children with homework, and improving their career potential. For more information please call (650) 558-2100 for the individual program coordinator.
Community Member Volunteer Requirements
All community member volunteers will need to be fingerprinted at District expense, provide proof of TB clearance and fill out an emergency contact card.
For English as a Second Language and Citizenship volunteers - attend an orientation session followed by a class observation.
For other programs - meet with the program coordinator to discuss possible openings.
