Make A Difference in Our Schools

At a time when local and state education funding is in peril and public schools face severe budget reductions volunteers are needed more than ever. In just a few hours a week, school volunteers have tremendous power to make a difference in individual students’ lives and in the overall progress of a classroom. 

It is widely believed that school volunteers positively impact self-esteem, attitudes, social growth, and communication skills in students. Through school volunteer programs, adults with a wide variety of backgrounds and skill sets are able to provide the kind of personalized attention that students need to succeed. 

The volunteer opportunities within our schools provide flexible ways for volunteers to commit as much time as they have available — from one to two hours to several days a week.

All applicants interested in volunteering at a school within Vallejo City Unified School District are encouraged to please contact the Human Resources Department at (707)556-8921 extension 50044.
