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.

About
A Court Appointed Special Advocate (or CASA) volunteer makes a difference for children in foster care. CASA volunteers are paired to work one-on-one with a child and ensure they have the services and support needed in the areas important to all children: stable placement, education, and healthcare. There are 30,000 kids in the child welfare system in LA and many need the support of a CASA volunteer.

The first step toward becoming a CASA volunteer is attending a one-hour information session, where we describe the role and impact our volunteers have.

Pasadena Community Beautification @ Families Forward Learning Center
Aug 31 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

We need a few good volunteers to help clean up our neighborhood and our organization!
As our school year is about to start, we want to have a clean and welcoming environment for our families to come and feel safe in. 

Opportunities on this day will include:
– a walk-around community clean up, where volunteers will pick up trash off the street and in local parks to make sure our surrounding streets are clean!
– a thorough clean up of our organization, to help prepare us for a great school year (may include cleaning windows, tables, chairs, shredding papers, etc)
– preparing materials for preschool classroom projects 
– clearing an area for a new garden on site

If you are interested in making a difference in your community and ensuring a preschool that serves low-income families has the strong support of our neighbors and friends, please consider dropping by for an hour or two to help set us up for a year of success!

ALL AGES ARE WELCOME!

HOW YOU CAN VOLUNTEER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE

EVERY CHILD DESERVES A CONNECTION

Each year, our volunteers contribute 5000+ hours, accounting for almost 80% of our services. If you're interested in promoting peace in the lives of foster youth, join our community and bring your knowledge and compassion to those who will truly benefit. It's a truly rewarding experience!

Primarily our volunteers connect with youth on Saturdays from 9am – 1pm in an environment that focuses on creativity, education, life skills building, health and wellness. Under the guidance of our staff, volunteers are given the tools to work one-to-one with youth, developing strong bonds that leave a lasting impression. 

HERE'S A QUICK REQUIREMENT CHECKLIST:
    • Be at least 18 years of age
    • Contribute at least 8 hours a month [2 Saturdays per month] and commit to a minimum of one year of service
    • Obtain Department of Justice clearance
    • Attend both a new volunteer orientation and training

And here's some of the things you'll be doing:

    • Engage, mentor and provide leadership for youth in foster care, ages 4-18 years old
    • Support our educational team in facilitating creative learning onsite and on field trips 
    • Create a consistent, nurturing community based environment
    • Have fun making new friends with like-minded folks!
