CALIFORNIA NEEDS YOU.

California is facing challenges such as homelessness, climate change, poverty, and natural disasters. If we are going to be successful in tackling these issues, we need to harness the power of our greatest asset, the 40 million people who call California home.

 

WHO WE ARE

We are the state office tasked with engaging Californians in service, volunteering and civic action to tackle our State’s most pressing challenges and while lifting up all communities. California Volunteers administers the AmeriCorps portfolio in California with over 80 programs providing critical services to more than 160,000 Californians annually. Led by the state’s Chief Service Officer, Josh Fryday, California Volunteers is supported by a bipartisan 25-member Commission and a team of experts driven by a mission to empower and mobilize all Californians to volunteer and serve in their communities.

THE IMPACT THAT YOU CAN MAKE

“Every time Jumpstart walks into the classroom, I see a look of not relief, but calm, come over their face: they are so happy that Jumpstart is there. As one teacher shared with me, there are many reasons for this: first, their job is extremely demanding, especially with the class I served in this year, which is exceptionally high-energy. It is a relief to have additional people in the class who they know are trained and reliable with their students.”
