We do need volunteers! The best volunteer for us is someone who enjoys cooking as well as being a guest, but we also need guest speakers on all subjects of professionalism. On days we cook, plate, sit down and eat, the students particularly love having a guest in the room, so no special experience is needed except a positive attitude and a smile.
For volunteering in a school with minors, there is a screening process and SF School Volunteers (now part of SF Ed Fund) streamlines this process.
To be a regular volunteer, you begin by filling out this form online. There is an orientation and fingerprinting process, and while they will let you know the fingerprinting costs them $66, no one will be turned away.
For a one time visit there is a waiver form to fill out, no fingerprinting required. Please drop me an email and I will send you the form. Even if you are only available for a one time volunteer visit, it helps our ability to connect to what is real.
