• Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Santa Clara Unified School District. We have many opportunities for you to share your passion by supporting our students and schools, and helping where you’re needed most. 

    Corporate and Nonprofit Volunteers

    If you would like to make arrangements to volunteer as a group, please contact Partnerships Manager Steven Neese at 408-423-2269 or visit our Partnerships webpage for more information.

    Family and Community Volunteers

    During the COVID-19 related health protocols and distance learning, we will be processing a limited number of volunteer applications, for site-specific volunteer opportunities. Please use the links below. The school site will confirm when the application has been processed.

    Here are some steps to guide you through the volunteer process: 

    1. Reach out to the school you would like to volunteer at to determine what opportunities are available.
      • Contact information for all of the school sites is located in the footer of their websites which you can find on our School Directory webpage.
    2. Once you have verified with the school site that they are in need of volunteers, complete the online volunteer packet below, selecting your chosen school from the drop-down menu:
    3. Submit a copy of a current TB test and a copy of a photo ID, such as a Driver's License.
      • These can be scanned and attached to the volunteer packet.
    4. The site administrator will review the application and either approve or deny the request.
    5. The school site or department secretary will notify you when you are cleared to volunteer.

    Please be aware that all volunteering is handled through the individual school sites — we do not have a volunteer pool that is monitored at the district level.
