Thank you for wanting to be a mentor!

Below are the steps needed to join the Mentoring for Success Program and be matched with a mentee or to sign up as a group mentor.

If you are an SFUSD employee at a school site:

  1. Contact the Mentor Program Site Coodinator at your school site (link to list of schools)
  2. Attend an orientation at your school site with the Mentor Program Coordinator
  3. Be matched with a student or small group at your school site

If you are an SFUSD employee, but do not work at a school site:

  1. Complete Be A Mentor! form
  2. Attend a Mentor Orientation (MFS District Staff will schedule this with you)
  3. Be assigned and oriented to a school site (typically near your office or where you travel in SF)
  4. Be matched with a student or small group at the school site

If you are a Community Member interested in volunteering at a school site:

There are a great number of students within the San Francisco Unified School District who can benefit from having an additional caring adult presence in their lives. Mentoring for Success is excited you have decided to take on this challenging but incredibly rewarding volunteer commitment. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming training! All mentor volunteers must go through a background check before they can work directly with a student; SF Education Fund will help you through this process.
