Volunteer Opportunities

Whether you're looking to volunteer as an individual or as a group, we welcome your help and compassion! 

Volunteers of America does not place volunteers into other organizations. To volunteer within our programs, see opportunities below.

  • Birthday Parties


    A birthday party is a luxury that neither families nor shelters can afford. But children deserve to be celebrated on their birthday! Sponsoring a birthday party creates lasting memories and reminds the kids in our programs that they are loved.

  • Operation Backpack


    Help prepare a child for success in school! Volunteer opportunities include sorting and stuffing backpacks, hosting collection drives, and more.

  • Other Group Volunteering


    If you have a group of volunteers, we can use your help with one-time projects at one of our many programs in Sacramento.
