Interested in volunteering? Don't know where to start? Answers and advice can be yours by attending the 8th Annual Fall Volunteer Village.

Volunteer Village aims to make it easier for the public to find their perfect volunteer placement in a one-stop shopping experience. The event provides potential volunteers an opportunity to interview nonprofit and public agencies to find a volunteer placement that matches their time, talents and interests.

Everyone - students, adults, retirees, families and corporate employees - with an interest in volunteering is invited to attend.  Over 40 Greater Long Beach community organizations, nonprofits and public agencies will have representatives available to provide potential volunteers information about their programs and how volunteers can help. The event is free to the public and attendees of all ages are welcome.

Volunteer Village is organized by the Greater Long Beach Directors of Volunteers, an affinity group convened by the Long Beach Nonprofit Partnership. Event co-sponsors are Long Beach Nonprofit Partnership, Long Beach Unified School District, Retired & Senior Volunteer Program and the City of Long Beach: Department of Parks, Recreation & Marine.

For general information, please contact Diane Johnson at Retired & Senior Volunteer Program: (562) 506-2801 or email Information for agencies interested in participating is available at Long Beach Nonprofit Partnership:
