Call for Volunteers

The Education Foundation is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization committed to reaching every child in the San Mateo-Foster City School District. We need volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of all of our students and help provide our kids with a well-rounded education across all aspects of learning: STEM, art, music, athletics, special education, etc.

Do you have any of these skills?
