Request a BSV Volunteer for 2023-24!

This application is intended for host staff who are interested in hosting a volunteer on an ongoing basis. Any BUSD educator can request a volunteer and we do our best to find the right volunteer for your unique needs. 

I. Onboarding Priorities

Berkeley Schools Volunteers will continue to be strategic about who we match and when. We'll onboard in the following order:

1. Returning BSV volunteers re-connecting with their previous BUSD Host Teacher
2. Returning BSV volunteers seeking a new BUSD Host Teacher
3. New BSV volunteers seeking a new placement in BUSD - it takes time to find you the right match!

Host Teachers may, of course, request any start date they want for a volunteer.

Tell Us About Yourself

Berkeley Schools Volunteers recognizes that name and gender identity are central to most individuals' sense of self and well-being, and that it is important for us to establish systems that acknowledge and support individuals' self-identification.

What Happens Next?

If you're requesting a volunteer or volunteers who you've worked with in the past, we'll need to ensure they clear screening requirements first - BSV will let you know via email but we try to be pretty quick about it. 

If you're requesting a new volunteer or volunteers who are new to you, we'll make the match as soon as we find the right fit (pending screening clearance). We will do a formal email introduction at that time, after which you'll launch your new partnership!
