Volunteer with HYC

HYC aims to work with individuals, organizations, and companies who have a passion for giving back and getting involved with the community! We have several opportunities to get involved. Please see our listing of events below. If you would like to join any of these events, please email Renett Banagas, Manager of Donor Engagement at rbanagas@hycinc.org

Youth Empowerment - This program is designated for at-risk youth ages 13-24 to implement job skills, college prep, career readiness, community engagement, mentorships, and community service opportunities. We are always in need of guest speakers, mentors, business site tours, and volunteers to assist with various workshops!


Veteran Relations - HYC and LCP are dedicated to partnering with local Veteran groups that serve our community. The El Camino Real Chapter of the American GI Forum host many events, community initiatives, and meetings at LCP and are always looking for volunteers to assist them with events, social media campaigns, website updates, outreach, and recruitment!                         


Facilitating Community Classes, Service Projects, or Community Workshops - Thanks to HYC, LCP is able to provide a multitude of community classes and recourses for people of all ages to partake in. Given your trade, your business may be able to assist by donating time and talents towards facilitating a new class, workshop, and/or resource of your own! Some examples would be: Arts & Craft classes, youth dance classes, book clubs, fitness classes, women empowerment, networking events, community workshops on various topics, hygiene care packages for homeless, etc.                      


Special Events - HYC is proud to facilitate many events throughout the year at Liberty Plaza. One-time volunteers who are able to assist at such events are crucial to the betterment of our organization! Some seasonal events and giving campaigns that we need volunteers for include but are not limited to: Memorial Day Celebration, HYC Staff Recognition Events, Back to School Community Giveaway, Veterans Day Celebration, Thanksgiving Food Box Giveaway, Holiday Giveaways for at-risk youth, Family Services Holiday Party, Community Fairs, etc.


Marketing & Outreach - What is the easiest way to assist our nonprofit? Share us with your network! We always need help spreading our mission and vision with community members. Contact HYC to have a representative visit your place of work and present the variety of programs and services that we offer in order to help individuals and families within our community. Ask your employees, followers, family, and friends to follow us on social media, conduct a team outing by posting brochures and flyers about our organization, or host a company campaign for employees, family, and friends to raise awareness!           


Fundraising Events & Development - Our Development Department is the heart of our organization! Funds and in-kind donations that we are able to collect, support our impact in the community! We always have a need to partner with organizations who can offer extra help participating in our fundraising events and campaigns throughout the year. Whether it be developing a matching program for employees, collecting in-kind donations, or hosting your own fundraising campaign in partnership with us, there are opportunities for all types of businesses and organizations to become involved.

Internships - Both clinical and non-clinical internship opportunities are available. Non-clinical internships assist the agency in various departments with community outreach, marketing, fundraising, and administrative duties. Clinical interns assist with providing individual. group, and family counseling programs within our Family Services Department.
