Get Involved


Community members, parents, and teachers can support our schools through giving, volunteering and communicating the value of public education

Business and community partnerships provide educational opportunities for PUSD students through donations and supporting programs.

Volunteer with Us

Through PEF, there are many ways to give back to the community. Not only can high school and college students, community members, business leaders and parents participate in projects at the PEF office, we also connect individuals to district-wide community service opportunities that support quality education right in Pasadena's public schools.
Whether you need to fulfill a volunteer hours requirement for your school or organization, want elementary classroom experience, or hope to help with our popular Rock4PEF Battle of the Bands or Summer Enrichment Program, we look forward to having your help! 
If you would like to volunteer, please fill out a Volunteer Application form indicating your areas of interest so that we can find the best opportunity for you!

Volunteers of any age are welcome.
