Volunteer Application

Volunteers aren’t just extra hands. They are fresh faces, people to talk with and new friends.

We have many great volunteer opportunities at Valley Village. You can help people with developmental disabilities by volunteering as field trip assistants, to work on a project, for an event, or in the office with administrative items.

Field Trip Assistants

This is a special opportunity to work directly with the men and women we serve through our day and residential programs. Field Trip Assistants will help push a wheelchair or just be a friend to talk to. The trips take place on Saturdays between 9am-3pm (trip hours will vary depending on the weather and location). Valley Village is looking for volunteers who can donate a few hours on Saturdays to join our clients on field trips to events, the beach, museums, malls, parks, and more. You do not need to go every Saturday, however some consistency is needed. These direct-service volunteer opportunities do require certain background and health checks, which we pay for. You’re getting fingerprinted for a great cause!

Events, Groups, Office Work

Occasionally, Valley Village has volunteer opportunities that are great for groups, and all ages. Several times per year, we host large events where we need lots of extra support. And, around the office, the hours are flexible. There’s a volunteer match for everybody!

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator by email or phone, (818) 587-9450, if you’d like to volunteer! To get a head start, you can download our volunteer application here.
