  • Wellness activities
  • Life Skills activities

Group Opportunities: 

Group opportunities can be scheduled on a case-by-case basis and can include the following:

Steps to Volunteer with The People Concern

1.  Complete an online volunteer application form. After submitting the application, you will immediately receive a confirmation email with next steps.


2. Prospective individual volunteers and group volunteer leaders must attend an orientation. These are held approximately twice a month, in Santa Monica and Mid City.

3. After orientation, prospective volunteers will be asked to submit negative TB test results from within the past year, consent to a background check, and additional forms that will be provided at orientation.

4. Once we have received the completed paperwork and processed the background check, you will be contacted by the volunteer team to discuss all the possibilities!
