You must submit an application for volunteering with The Youth Center before coming to volunteer. Volunteers are an integral part of our organization. They bring time, talent, passion and a fresh set of eyes. We couldn’t operate without them! When you submit your application, please stop by The Youth Center at 10909 Oak Str. Los Alamitos at any time between 3 and 5pm. We will show you around and provide info on current volunteer opportunities.

The Youth Center is dependent on a strong spirit of volunteerism. From working in the office and helping at the events to tutoring and Camp SHARK volunteers, we have opportunities for everyone. Help out every day or once a year. Volunteer solo, with your family or company.
