• Becoming Actively involved in education at the local level can help influence the direction and quality of learning for all students. Olinda Elementary depends on the parents, guardians and community members who help out daily to make our school a better place. To become a volunteer there are a couple of steps to follow:


    Apply Online at www.beamentor.org/now or call 510-342-7176 to have a paper application sent to you. You can also pick them up at the office! You'll receive a welcome email once you complete the application and questionnaire.


    Log-in information will be sent to you with instructions on how to download and complete your Live Scan Form, and about scheduling a fingerprinting appointment Tuesdays 9:00 am-11 am and Thursdays 1:00 pm-3 pm at the Community Engagement Department 5100 Potrero Ave. Richmond, CA, 94804. Please bring these items with you: Completed Live Scan Form, Valid US Government issued ID or Consulate ID or Passport.


    A WCCUSD Badge will be mailed to you after all documentation is received and verified- it might take up to 30 days to get your badge but once you have a letter stating you've completed the process- you can start volunteering!
