Want to help an Oakland public school? I hear they’re looking for a few good reading tutors, student mentors, career coaches, homework helpers, science coaches, artists, gardeners and playground monitors.

You can learn about those and other opportunities this weekend at a fair hosted by the Montclair Community Action Group and the school district. It’s from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Westlake Middle School, 2629 Harrison St. at 27th Street, across from the Whole Foods.

For more information about the event, visit the Montclair Community Action website , or email Risha Riley at risha.riley@ousd.k12.ca.us.
