Volunteers are a vital resource for many schools. Volunteers bring much needed assistance, experience and knowledge to our school communities. LAUSD processed over 14,000 school volunteers during the 2012-2013 school-year. 

Purpose of the School/Office Volunteer Program

  • Assist in classrooms, thereby allowing teachers to attend to students in need of extra help
  • Support school personnel in meeting the needs of students more effectively
  • Strengthen school/home/community relations by engaging parents and community as school volunteers
  • Provide adult role models for students through tutoring and mentoring opportunities that broaden their educational experience
  • Provide enriching intergenerational experiences for students and senior citizens that enriches students' lives.
