We are Los Angeles...

Dear L.A. Works Volunteers and Fellow Changemakers,

L.A. Works was founded in 1991 during a turbulent period of civil and social unrest. Still today people are feeling vulnerable, angry, and powerless to make a meaningful difference. Many of our nonprofit partners are worried about the well-being of the vulnerable communities they serve. Thanks to you, they know they can count on L.A. Works volunteers to lend a hand. L.A. Works is a non-partisan, independent nonprofit organization. Our only agenda is helping all residents of Los Angeles... 7 days a week; 365 days a year.

As our loyal volunteers, many of you would like to serve communities that are likely to be placed at risk in the coming days. We at L.A. Works wanted to use our connections and relationships in the nonprofit community to help bring visibility to volunteer opportunities that empower individuals to get involved, get connected, and work together toward a better future.

This page is reserved for volunteer opportunities that address the issue areas of greatest risk in this new political reality. We are highlighting volunteer opportunities with organizations working in the following areas:​

       HEALTH

       LGBTQ+ IDENTIFYING INDIVIDUALS

       IMMIGRATION SERVICES

       ENVIRONMENT

       WOMEN’S RIGHTS

       RACIAL JUSTICE AND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM


In Peace, Service, and Solidarity,

L.A. Works Staff
