For high schoolers, there are 2 primary pathways into Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV), which is a program of the Berkeley Public Schools Fund:

1. Students who can give at least an hour every week could join Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV) as a "Distance Learning Volunteer." These volunteers complete BSV's onboarding training and then get matched with a BUSD Host Teacher (at the grade level and subject area of their choosing). They support online - in whole group Zooms, in small groups, or even in 1:1 breakouts. They might also help their Host Teacher review students' asynchronous work. The distance learning volunteer application is HERE <https://www.berkeleypublicschoolsfund.org/forms/bsv-application-2/> and we have several orientations in January.

2. Students who have time every once in a while can join Berkeley Schools Volunteer's COVID-response email list to get notified about and sign up for other district-wide projects. Some projects are ongoing, like staffing the Ed Hub every Tues/Thurs afternoon (BUSD's central distribution site for tech and learning tools) or joining BSV's Tech Support team (to answer student and family tech questions asynchronously). BSV also has periodic one-time events like assembling science kits, or restoring a school garden. COVID-response volunteers receive about 2 emails each month with ongoing BUSD volunteer opportunities. 
Students can sign up to join BSV's COVID-response email list HERE <https://www.berkeleypublicschoolsfund.org/forms/bsv-one-time-volunteer-events/>.

We hope many of you can join us on the front lines of BUSD's COVID-response during this very difficult year.

Do you have broken stuff? 
Essential Repair Skills Training  
Why not learn to fix your stuff instead of sending it to landfill and spending money on replacements?  In these training sessions you will learn hands-on skills in how to diagnose and repair your broken belongings. You’ll also learn about the impact of throwing stuff away and how you can do your part to help the environment.  

The training will run from January 29 to April 30, 2021, meeting once a week, via Zoom, Fridays, 3-4pm. Sessions will be taught by Cal students, along with community repair experts.  The January 29 session will be a brief introduction, an overview of repair concepts will start in February, then in mid-February the class will focus on hands-on repair training sessions covering basic electronics, such as phones and tablets; appliances, such as lamps and headphones; clothing; bicycles and skateboards.  

The training will wrap up with a survey, asking participants to reflect on what they learned and next steps in terms of further learning, internships and career opportunities.  Certificates of completion will be given to students who attend the sessions and successfully complete the course and survey. The class will be limited to 10 students, with a waiting list to accommodate other interested students.
