Make it Your Summer of Service
Projects available throughout the summer
Summer is here and it is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors. So grab your friends and family to take in the beauty of the day and make a difference for your community at the same time. We have a great list of ways to get outside while giving back from park festivals to community clean-ups.
Service Enterprise Training for Non Profits
Aptos Training Dates - 9am to 1pm | July 22, Aug. 4, Aug. 19 and Sept. 1
We are pleased to partner with Points of Light, the largest organization in the world dedicated to volunteer service, to offer you the Service Enterprise Initiative (SEI). This initiative goes beyond standard volunteer management training by empowering nonprofits to more effectively address community needs and scale their operations by transforming the way they engage volunteers. We offer this training throughout the year and provide scholarships to qualified non-profits.
Dine Out for Village Santa Cruz
Tuesday August 9 - 11:30 AM - 10PM | Cafe Cruz (2621 41st Ave, Soquel)
The Volunteer Center is supporting the efforts of a new start-up organization. We invite you to dine with us at their first fundraiser to learn more about their work. Their goal is a vibrant, caring community, with neighbors of all ages helping each other, so individuals can stay in their homes and engaged in the community, through all the transitions of aging. 25% of the dining proceeds will go towards putting their vision into action.
