Get Involved

We invite community members, parents, teachers and students to get involved with our schools through giving, volunteering and communicating the value of public education

Come join us at our Celebrating our Schools Gala event in May or let us connect you with a wide range of volunteer opportunities, advisory committees and community engagement initiatives.  Community involvement in programs such as Principal for a Day, College and Career Pathways, our Realtor Initiative and Summer Enrichment Program expand our capacity to shape public perception about our schools, and provide essential resources and enrichment opportunities to our teachers and students. 

Get out. Get involved. Here's how. 



Join us Tuesday May 2, 2017 at Pasadena City Hall!  At our annual spring gala we host inspirational speakers, honor our community leaders and showcase our accomplishments.  This is a great opportunity to both celebrate and get involved in support of PEF and PUSD.  Enoy a dazzling evening outside with delicious food and interesting speakers and guests while learning more about what PEF has accomplished this year. Come as a guest or volunteer for the evening!


Ensure excellence in the public schools of Altadena, Pasadena, and Sierra Madre by joining other dedicated community members on PEF committees, such as the Community Engagement Initiative. These leaders share their expertise and advise PEF on issues ranging from grants and programs to outreach and visibility. Teachers can help PEF help their schools by joining PEF Ambassadors. To learn more about how you can be a champion for our students, email or call 626-396-3600 ext. 88350.




Whether you seek more engagement with your community or child's school, need to fulfill community service hours, or want real classroom experience,  we have an opportunity for you!

Volunteer now!
