Big Sunday happily welcomes you to Our Really Big Community Calendar

We try to include all kinds of volunteering and helping opportunities for all kinds of interests, talents, passions, and ages! As you’ll see, these include volunteering opportunities (one-time and long-term) as well as the chance to support a nonprofit by attending fundraising events. Plus, of course, we include all of Big Sunday’s homegrown events, too! Whoever you are, and whatever you do, there is someone out there who could use your help.

If you have questions about our calendar, or would like to add a listing, please contact calendar@bigsunday.org or submit your event/opportunity via the button below.

WITHOUT LIMITS Math & English Tutoring Program @ Urban Partners Los Angeles at 1st Unitarian Church of Los Angeles
Apr 11 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

For 10 years, Urban Partners LA has hosted WITHOUT LIMITS, a tutoring program for inner-city families at the First Unitarian Church in the heart of Koreatown. In this area of the city many families face significant barriers to education. Local schools are underfunded and overcrowded; home support is limited while parents work 2-3 jobs and struggle to understand their children's homework because English is their 2nd language. We tutor the students every Saturday morning from 10 – Noon; parents enjoy quarterly convivios to learn how to help their children in their studies; families enjoy field trips sponsored by the Sierra Club.
Join our fun (and sometimes wacky!) team of volunteer tutors to help our wonderful, eager-to-learn students grow in their math and reading skills. Want to play hot potato with words or math problems? We try new and different ways to make learning fun! We welcome one and all – give it a try one time and learn what we're all about. Maybe you can donate one weekend a month or you'll want to help out several times a month. We look forward to meeting you and helping you …"to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit" (quote by Nelson Henderson)!
