About Volunteering


Do you have talents you would like to put to good use?

Lamorinda Village offers all of us ways to help our neighbors. Volunteers experience the satisfaction that comes with using their skills to make a positive difference in people's lives. 

 

Volunteers form a cornerstone of Lamorinda Village, drawing upon the untapped capacity of people in our communities to support each other.  Volunteers can include members, their children, college students, empty nesters, retirees, and many others from the community.
