California Volunteer Matching Network

California Volunteer Matching Network


All Californians have something they care about – kids, seniors, the environment, family, the homeless, the arts, animals or other community issues. All Californians need is a way to find out how they can help.

California Volunteers brings together a statewide network of local volunteer connector agencies and online volunteer connector tools to provide support and help recruit volunteers for our state’s nonprofits and public agencies. The California Volunteer Matching Network (CVMN) is hosted at and is the single largest source of volunteer opportunities in California. Nonprofits and public agencies that need volunteers can list their opportunities with California Volunteers’ local and online partners and take advantage of statewide and local marketing efforts.

For Volunteers

Want to be a part of a beach clean-up in Santa Cruz? Befriend lonely seniors in LA? Tutor kids in Sacramento? Help your community get disaster prepared? You choose the issue, you name the location and you select your time commitment. It’s that easy!

The California Volunteer Matching Network connects Californians like you to volunteer opportunities in their own communities through a dynamic, simple-to-use online volunteer search engine, making it easy for you to take action and support the causes you care about.
