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.

Young Storytellers is an arts education nonprofit with programs in public elementary schools all over Los Angeles and a few remote locations across the country. Using the tried and true techniques of mentoring, collaboration, and performance, we provide students with an opportunity to write stories and see them brought to life on stage. Our mission is to inspire young people to discover the power of their own voice. Our Script to Stage program is a nine-week program with volunteers offering one-on-one mentoring for fifth graders where they learn creative self-expression by writing their very own screenplay. At the end of the program, we have working actors come perform the plays live! Each session occurs for one hour once a week at individual school sites typically during their lunch hour. We especially need amazing volunteers like you for the following three schools that start next week:

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!

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.
