Volunteer Development: Serve
Monthly Volunteering

Bay Area Serve team organizes hands-on monthly volunteer activity to provide opportunities throughout the year for teenagers, adults and families to get involved, learn new skills and give back to the community. In the past, Bay Area Serve events have included home building with Habitat for Humanity, painting at the Milpitas Playhouse, tree planting for Cubberley Community Day with Canopy, and clean-up at the Coyote Creek for Earth Day. There is no orientation or prior experience required.
