VOLUNTEER

Come out, get involved, help others and feel good!

Volunteers are a vital part of Villa's day-to-day operations. You can choose to participate in any of the following ways:

Program volunteers:
Experience what we do first-hand by volunteering to work in one of our programs where you can add joy and meaning to the lives of our special needs children, adults and seniors. Provide friendship while assisting children in the classrooms, or helping adults and seniors at our Adult Day Programs with arts, crafts, exercise, movement, music and other activities.
The Tournament of Roses Royal Court and Villa's Service & Social (SAS) Club, which was started by 2013 Rose Queen Vanessa Manjarrez.  
Beautify our campus: Good with a hammer, a saw, a brush, a shovel? We're looking for a few good people to help beautify our campus and our residential homes. If your company, organization or other group is looking for a job to do as a team, then come on down and paint our buildings, plant some trees and flowers…the possibilities are endless! Eagle Scout, Girl Scout Gold Award and senior projects are also welcome.

Program (ADP) facility for their Keller Williams Red Day.

Volunteer in our offices: Good with numbers, answering phones, filing, or are you computer savvy? Put your skills to good use by helping out in our corporate offices in Pasadena and Thousand Oaks!

Share your talents: Are you good at music? Do you like to dance? Do you have a special talent that you would like to teach? Share your skills and interests with our clients! It'll make you feel good.

Assist with fundraisers: Villa hosts several fundraisers each year and volunteers are a tremendous asset in these projects. From decorating to selling tickets or getting sponsorships, volunteers are our major support.
