How can I use VolunteerLA to promote volunteering and engagement in my community?

We believe that volunteering is one of the most powerful ways to connect and improve a community.


One way that community influencers can do this is to “Share” activities with your friends and family. When you sign up for an Opportunity, click the Share button or post using #LetsVolunteerLA.
