About Us

inspiring learning•connecting community

Pacifica School Volunteers began as a non-profit educational organization in 1997 to provide school volunteers to assist students and to support Pacifica’s low-wealth public schools in strengthening curriculum and instruction. Over the last 15 years, we have grown into a network of over 500 volunteers serving over 20,000 hours a year. Last year, we served 27, 103 Volunteer Hours in our local schools!! Pacifica School Volunteers are at work at each of Pacifica’s nine school sites, providing student support, parent education, and involving the community.

Our mission is to inspire a love of learning, to advance students’ academic achievement, and to promote students’ well being in Pacifica’s public schools. Toward these ends, we recruit, train, and place adult and high school volunteers in literacy, math and other programs in the schools. We also host Read Aloud Days, mentor and evaluate for the Oceana High School Senior Exhibitions, support school Math Fairs, organize parent and volunteer education forums, and are involved in other community events. In the summer, we host ThinkBridge Summer Camp, a innovative and creative opportunity for kids 6-12 yrs old, and we support Kickoff to Kindergarten, with parent education and volunteer placement.
