CaliforniaVolunteers is the state office that manages programs and initiatives aimed at increasing the number of Californians engaged in service and volunteering.
CaliforniaVolunteers is proud to showcase some of its most innovative programs and initiatives. Our hope is that we can continue to share best practices and resources, and collaborate with various partners on new ideas that will continue to push the service and volunteering movement forward! Some programs and initiatives have already launched, some are in the development phase and some have already proven very successful. Whatever the state of the program, we are confident that it will provide you with a unique insight into our programs and offer you perspective on our key program findings and lessons learned.
