Those interested in volunteering to assist in Florida are encouraged to learn about opportunities at www.volunteerflorida.org, the website of Volunteer Florida, the state’s lead agency for volunteerism and national service that administers federal, state, and local funding for service programs.   Individuals looking to volunteer at shelters, should complete shelter operations training online and submit a registration form. Since the damages are unknown as of now, potential volunteers are asked to seek opportunities with charitable organizations that are currently stocking supplies.  The website is frequently updated, so please check back for new information.

Anyone looking to get involved after Hurricane Irma has passed, is encouraged to volunteer with local and nationally known organizations. A list of volunteer websites are available at www.nvoad.org.

If you are a nurse and available to volunteer, please email BPRCHDPreparedness@flhealth.gov to volunteer.

Those interested in volunteering to assist in Texas and Louisiana for Hurricane Harvey recovery, L.A. Works encourages volunteers already in the area (don’t self-deploy if you are not already there!) to contact Volunteer Houston, a HandsOn Network affiliate of L.A. Works through the Points of Light, for opportunities to get involved. You can also support first responder organizations like FEMA and the American Red Cross.

Now Hiring: RSVP Outreach Coordinator Position Description (pt position)

L.A. Works is a 501(c)3 nonprofit volunteer action center that creates, manages, and implements hands-on community service projects throughout the greater Los Angeles area. The primary mission of L.A. Works is to make L.A. a more equitable place by empowering Angelenos to address pressing social issues through volunteerism. L.A. Works recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. In the early 90s, the founders of L.A. Works sought to identify and provide hands-on service opportunities that would improve the quality of life for all in a diverse, sprawling city. Their hope was that when individuals work together on local needs through hands-on service, they would feel empowered to address the broader concerns of their neighborhoods and cities. From this idea, L.A. Works, now Los Angeles’ premier volunteer action center, was founded.

L.A. Works, Los Angeles’ largest and longest running volunteer action center is uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between interest in “getting involved” and nonprofits seeking to leverage volunteer power for the common good. L.A. Works is often the first organization that nonprofits come to for support in harnessing the community’s energy, as well as for help with volunteer recruitment, management, and training. Volunteers also seek out L.A. Works to give back and connect themselves to the city.

RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people age 55 and above. Funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service as a part of the larger Senior Corps initiative, RSVP engages older Americans in volunteer opportunities across the country. These volunteers have been an invaluable resource for nationwide response efforts—in everything from hunger prevention to natural disasters. L.A. Works has received a three-year renewable grant to develop a strong Los Angeles RSVP program in the west L.A. area. Building on the foundation of existing programming and relationships that L.A. Works has with nonprofits in the community, this program will more than double the volunteer resources L.A. Works provides to the greater Los Angeles region.

For MLK Jr. Day of Service on Jan. 16, L.A. Works organized more than 1,500 corporate and community volunteers to beautify Dorsey HS, a Title 1 LAUSD school that has suffered from maintenance and facilities staff budget cuts. One of the facilities staff member shared with us:

Our volunteer power collectively supported improving the learning environment for the next generation of change makers.

10 Things You Can Do to Help Heal Southern California

By L.A. Works Guest Contributor: Christine Essel
President and CEOsouthern-california-grantmakers
Southern California Grantmakers

With racial, ethnic, religious, and political divisiveness rising across America, organizations across the country, prompted by an effort by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, are calling for a National Day of Healing on Tuesday, January 17. The goal is to spur efforts to heal the wounds created by racial and other biases and to build an equitable and just society in which all people thrive.

10 Things You Can Do to Help Heal Southern California

  1. On January 17, join Community Coalition for an open forum with colleagues from a diverse group of organizations focused on racial healing. This conversation will take place 10:00 am to 11:30 am at 8101 S. Vermont Avenue.
  2. Get to know someone of a different racial, ethnic, or religious background. Ask them to share something about their history and culture and share something about yours.
  3. Start a thought provoking conversation or share inspiring resources through your social media posts with questions like “What does racial healing look like to you?” or “How can racial healing help our country become more vibrant?”. Post a short video addressing why racial healing is important to you. Use the hashtags #TRHT (Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation), #TheDayToHeal, and #DayOfRacialHealing.
  4. Recognize your own biases – we all have them! Try taking the Harvard Implicit Bias Test. Once you know your biases, you’ll be better equipped to resist stereotyping and look for the good in each person.
  5. Visit a local museum to explore the diversity around us. Check out the Annenberg Space for Photography’s IDENTITY exhibit (through 2/26) and lectures and exhibits at the Museum of Tolerance, Chinese American Museum, Japanese American National Museum, California African American Museum, La Plaza de Cultura y Artes; and the Dream Resource Center, among others.
  6. Watch a film about the impacts of racism and discrimination in our country and our modern world. Consider Hidden Figures, Defamation, Loving, 13th, Dreamer, A Better Life, He Named Me Malala, Breathin: The Eddy Zheng Story, Grab, Moonlight, The Case Against 8, and even Zootopia (to spark discussion with children). We also recommend reading Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, Enrique’s Journey by Sonia Nazario, Trustbuilding by Rob Corcoran.
  7. Explore how race and racism have shaped Southern California specifically. Consider reading Fire This Time: The Watts Uprising and the 1960s by Gerald Horne, The Changs Next Door to the Díazes: Remapping Race in Suburban California by Wendy Cheng, Mendez v. Westminster: School Desegregation and Mexican-American Rights by Philippa Strum, Southland by Nina Revoyr, and Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 by Anna Deavere Smith. You can also attend a performance of the upcoming production of Zoot Suit at the Mark Taper Forum to experience the cultural and political context of Chicano life in 1940s.
  8. Be a tourist in your own community: visit some lesser known sites of local civil rights history with the alternative guidebook, A People’s Guide to Los Angeles by Laura Barraclough. You can also visit the Harada House in Riverside County.
  9. Think about the diversity within your neighborhood, workplace, local school, house of worship, etc., and initiate conversations about where and why there might be a lack of inclusion.
  10. Imagine what a healed Southern California community would look like and commit personally to work for racial healing and equity; volunteer with or support organizations that focus on healing and equity.

5 Tips for New Volunteers

DSC_6123

Want to give back to your community, but not sure how? Here are five tips from L.A. Works project leaders to make your volunteering experience worthwhile — for you and those receiving your generosity. Click here for our opportunity calendar for a volunteer project near you that fits your busy schedule.

1. Go with your heart. “Volunteer for a cause that speaks to you,” says Ed Simon, who oversees craft activities with homeless kids at The Midnight Mission. “The closer it is to your heart, the more fulfilling it will be.”

2. Know before you go. “Sometimes people sign up unaware that this is a special-needs program,” says Crystal Garcia of KEEN (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now), which provides athletics for the disabled. “A little research goes a long way.”

3. Be flexible. “Volunteer morale could make or break a project,” says Kelly Newman who manages volunteers at Aviva Family and Children’s Services, a West Hollywood shelter for at-risk girls. “When trying to motivate our teens to go hiking for instance, everyone needs to be on the same page.”

4. Don’t flake. “A sorority signed up once to volunteer, and not one showed,” says Bona Tucker, founder of PetSave Foundation, a rescue for abandoned rabbits. “When you’ve got hundreds of rabbits to feed and clean, this could be a disaster. Advanced notice is key.”

5. Have fun! “Volunteering should be joyful, not a chore,” says Joe Mullich, who leads volunteers at Children of the Night, a shelter for former teen prostitutes. “Perhaps the greatest thing about it, apart from serving others, is working side-by-side with fun, compassionate Angelenos you might otherwise never meet.”
