Umlaut Foundation will host Math Labs for only Pleasanton youth/volunteers as a trial program. Once we have successfully implemented the program, we will work to branch out the program to our non-PUSD foster youth and volunteers. 

Pleasanton Unified volunteers can sign up to help during Math Labs for Pleasanton foster/AAFN youth. Math Labs resemble office hours that a teacher might provide at school for MATH SUBJECTS ONLY. Foster/AAFN students will be on the call and can ask for help when needed. If you are interested in participating in our first Math Lab on Wednesday, October 28th, from 4 PM - 6 PM, please fill out our Math Lab Interest Form. Volunteers should be on the call for at least 30 minutes and are recommended to stay for the full two hours. Two UF directors will be present on the call to monitor and host the Zoom meeting. After filling out the form, you will be sent an email with a Zoom invite. Submission will close after five volunteers have completed the form. The deadline to submit the form is Sunday, October 25th, at 11:59 PM

Monthly Updates

Monthly Quota

Starting September, Umlaut Foundaiton has decided to implement a new policy to encourage tutoring requests. Every month, each volunteer must request to tutor at least once for every five foster youth requests. For example, if there are thirteen topic requests this month, everyone should have submitted a tutor request at least twice.

Senior Service Hours

if you are a senior attending Amador Valley High School, we have been placed on the pre-approved list of nonprofits for senior service hours. We will be able to track and record your hours, and once you have made the request, we can sign the certification form. If you are not attending Amador Valley High School and would like this benefit extended to your district, please let us know, and we will contact your school board.
