Community Connections

Community Connections is an online tool for nonprofits to build community awareness of their organization and recruit volunteers to support their programs. Nonprofits can post a variety of volunteer opportunities ranging from large, one-day events and ongoing programming to specific skill-based roles. Nonprofits have access to thousands of community members who visit our website every day searching for ways to volunteer.

To get your volunteer projects and events featured on our website, please complete our online Community Connection Form. You can fill out this form for multiple uses. 

If you need to make changes or updates to your postings or check on an existing or recently submitted posting, please email us at info [at] laworks [dot] com. Partner organizations currently do NOT receive Log In credentials after they register. L.A. Works manages your organizational profile and volunteer postings.
