Offer your time to make a difference in your neighborhood

This group of volunteers donated time and worked on the community garden at Doria in Irvine

Volunteering is a great way to help Jamboree help others by enhancing the services we provide. Time donated by Jamboree volunteers furthers our mission to strengthen communities, transform lives, and end homelessness. We offer a number of ways for individuals and groups, like local student and University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) Master Gardeners of Orange County volunteers (pictured above), to engage with many of our 96+ communities serving 24,700+ residents – from Sacramento to L.A. and Orange County, to the Inland Empire and San Diego.

It's easy to give back

Whether you’re a student, retiree, or business professional, you can get involved in our service programs and make a tangible difference in the lives of kids, families, seniors, and veterans.

  • Current students: Earn community service hours – and gain valuable experience – when you volunteer with us during the summer or throughout the school year. Or, find a Jamboree property near your school where you can help us create healthy communities. 
  • Colleges and universities: Our growing network – including community colleges, UC, and Cal State schools statewide – provides students with hands-on ways to make local communities a better place to live. Academic internship opportunities are available in our onsite after-school programs, as well as at our corporate offices in Business Development, Project and Asset Management, Marketing Communications, and much more.
  •  Professionals: Share your time and talents on a regular basis with a deserving and motivated audience. If you have limited availability, join us by serving at one of our one-day events.
  • Companies: Serve together with other staff or a team of your colleagues. Find out how you can partner with us to make a difference in your local neighborhood. It’s a great way to get your company name in front of the community. 

Get started today!

We look forward to serving with you!
