Volunteers are at the heart of Peninsula Bridge. One-on-one relationships can transform a student’s life. By signing up to volunteer at Peninsula Bridge, you will work with students to help them succeed on the path to college completion. 

Volunteer Opportunities: 

  • Mentor a student: Establish a positive long-term one on one relationship with a high school student. 

  • Tutor a student: Inspire students to learn through weekly tutoring in STEM, language arts, and math. 

  • School Choice Application support: Applying to independent or parochial middle and high schools can be overwhelming. Support a student and their parents with independent school applications in the fall/winter. 

  • Career Visits: Host a career day for our students at your company or visit a classroom to share your career story. 

  • Teach: Teach a class like coding or entrepreneurship. 

  • Summer Teaching Assistant (Summer 2019 applications will be ready in November 2018): Support student summer learning in classrooms, lead electives and mentor students. Limited to Peninsula Bridge High School Academy students and high school students (or alumni) enrolled in the independent schools hosting Peninsula Bridge summer programs. Apply here.
