Volunteer with Children

Working with children

Summer community Service Project performed in conjunction with various non-profit organizations located throughout Santa Barbara

Make a difference in a child’s life! Spend time with children in a nurturing and caring environment. Actively participate and guide the children through their daily summer curriculum, which includes: character and leadership development, health and life skills, arts, sports, fitness, and other recreational activities. Through these daily interactions, build special friendships and relationships with the children, which will help promote positive self-image, build self-esteem and reinforce social skills. Experience life changing opportunities while helping Santa Barbara youth grow and learn through interactive projects, summer fun activities, and workshops.

** Per California law, volunteers working with children in a preschool setting will need to provide proof of vaccinations for Influenza, COVID-19, Pertussis, and Measles. Each participant must also provide a negative TB test dated within the last calendar year.

Environmental Restoration and Education

Protect the Environment

Our restoration and education project will increase awareness and promote individual and group actions to help the environment. Our volunteers will restore native plant-life to balance the eco-system in the San Marcos Foothills, reduce weeds and shrubs that encroach upon local plant species throughout Santa Barbara County, help with land surveys and studies, and learn about the beautiful Channel Islands. During this program our volunteers will also learn about the history of this magnificent area and the importance of keeping the eco-system in balance. Please note our participants will split their time between volunteer work and naturalist-led educational activities.
