L.A. Works is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, volunteer action center that empowers Angelenos to address pressing social issues through volunteerism and community collaborations. As an independent, nonprofit volunteer action center, L.A. Works addresses three principal needs:
-Increase volunteer participation in community service projects;
-Provide community service organizations with access to volunteer labor and other resources; and
-Educate and encourage people to engage in the broader social issues affecting the greater Los Angeles Community.
L.A. Works makes it easy for volunteers to get involved in the community, whether for just a couple of hours or as an ongoing commitment. Our goal is to successfully connect volunteers to the nonprofit organizations that need them most.
Getting connected to volunteer opportunities is all done through our website www.laworks.com. There you can search through our Opportunity Calendar or Search Opportunities section to find volunteer opportunities that you are interested in and that fit into your schedule. We have a variety of projects to choose from in many impact areas including the environment, senior services, youth education and meal service.
