What’s your specialty?
We are experts at matching up the interests and skills of volunteers with the needs of very low income students who welcome guidance and support. Mentor a high school student into college and beyond. Read aloud with an elementary school student, or lead a science workshop. Teach violin, drums, or guitar. Drive with us on field trips to museums, hiking, or the beach. Help us arrange a college visit to your alma mater. And definitely, come splash with us at our annual fundraiser for Kid City, “Splash of LA,” a one-day family festival in August.
Want to help but don’t want to travel?
We need online writing coaches to work with students on personal statements. And we’re currently setting up online math tutoring for college students confronting their first college level math course.
We also welcome other kinds of help
If you’re a handy-person, we often have small jobs at Kid City. We sometimes need hardware advice and technical expertise with our computer networks. Help with mailings, clean-up, special event planning – it’s all good. If you want to volunteer, we’ll find the right place for you.
