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 or submit your event/opportunity via the button below.

More Information:

Since opening in 2002, PYFC has served hundreds of youth through gang prevention services, case management, film production training, counseling, tutoring, career and college readiness and computer training. Our facility houses the City’s first ever public recording studio, and is the only non-profit in the region whose services target youth ages 10-24 who are most at risk, such as youth who dropped out of school, are on probation and/or struggling academically. Your contribution will support PYFC’s innovative and unique model of youth services.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 to meet our commitment to the youth and community we serve. Join us!
