Partner with Us
Group volunteering is a great way to get out of the office and connect with your community, and each other. Mission Graduates’ work would not be possible without the support of our volunteers. Groups can participate in a variety of projects – in the classroom, out on the yard, or at one of our exciting events.
Please contact Jenna Casey, Community Engagement Manager, to learn more about any of these opportunities or if you have any questions regarding volunteering at Mission Graduates.
Group Volunteer Opportunities
One-Day Volunteer Events
Pull Up A (Tiny) Chair – Join our students as they work on daily lessons, play four-square on the yard, grab a healthy snack, and try out something new in our afterschool programs.
Celebrate With Us – Mission Graduates hosts events for the whole family, such as literacy, science, poetry, healthy choices, and community celebrations.
We are always looking for exciting new enrichment for our students. Underwrite the cost of a Lego-Robotics class, create a computer cart for the Coding Club, or donate art supplies for a student masterpiece – and then come see your gift in action!
1:1 Tutoring & Mentoring
Buddy Up – Join us on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis. We always welcome new volunteers into our classrooms to support homework help and reading buddies.
Hit The Books – Help our high school students stay on track this year. Join us for monthly “Cram Jams” – a chance for our high schoolers to get support with school assignments, college applications, and scholarship essays.
Share Your Passion – Connect with a high school or college student and help them find their own path to college and career. Become a mentor, work one-on-one with a future college student, or help a college student build their resume through an internship with your company.
Support Mission Graduates behind the scenes and share your valuable time and skills through pro-bono projects. Or join the Marketing, Fundraising, or Food for Thought Task Forces and help us develop new ways to connect with the community.
Mission Graduates hosts several signature events for students and families each year. As an event sponsor, your team will not only be an integral part of the day’s activities, you will also leave a last impact on the program.
March to College – May 2018
Students on the path to college march down Mission Street with signs, chanting “I am going to college one day!” March with us and celebrate college-going culture in the Mission District. Ensure even more Mission students and families participate by sponsoring this exciting event.
Dr. Seuss Day – March 2018
Read aloud, create Seusstastic crafts, and leave behind a classroom set of everyone’s favorite first books.
