Quick Overview: The primary activity of the Compton Initiative is the quarterly workday, when we match large numbers of volunteers with 20-25 prepared work sites. Each event includes painting, debris removal, yard work and graffiti removal at homes, schools, churches and public spaces.
Mission or Broader Program Description: The Compton Initiative is a non-profit organization founded in 2006 with a 40-year commitment to restore the City of Compton by painting homes, schools and churches on quarterly workdays in partnership with individual volunteers and other organizations.
Starting with a small group of volunteers eager to show love and inspire hope, we’ve grown to thousands of caring workers of all ages and backgrounds in yellow shirts who serve across the city.
We offer community organizations, service groups and non-profits an opportunity to make a sustainable impact in Compton by instilling a sense of care and pride within each neighborhood.
Impact: To date, we’ve beautified over 573 homes, 372 buildings at 30 schools, 35 church buildings, 31 public spaces, 2 medical clinics and 134 murals. With each beautification event, grateful residents marvel as their homes go from dull to vibrant in just a few hours, and astonished students return to freshly painted schools and a new sense of pride.
Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: Volunteers will work at worksites that may include painting, debris removal, yard work and graffiti removal at homes, schools, churches and public spaces.
Requirements: Volunteers are required to work from 8:00am-12:00pm.
