Volunteer Opportunities

One of the many things that make us proud to live in Los Alamos is the large number of volunteers who offer their skills, time, and energy to help local nonprofits. Below are some ways that you can learn about local volunteer opportunities.

All Together Los Alamos – ATLA is a mailing list that shares volunteer opportunities in Los Alamos County. Announcements to this group are either immediate (one time, e.g. we need chaperones for a food drive) or ongoing ( e.g. reception desk at one of our senior centers), which are shared monthly. To subscribe to this list, send an email to volunteer@losalamoscf.org.

LAVA  – The Los Alamos Volunteer Association partners with local non-profit agencies, matching senior volunteers with volunteer opportunities within these organizations. Every year the Los Alamos Volunteer Association Volunteers give more than 75,000 hours of volunteer service to our community! Our goal is to have healthy, happy seniors and a self-sufficient community that meets the needs of its members

VolunteerMatch – VolunteerMatch is used by Los Alamos National Laboratory to advertise and track volunteering by LANL employees. Whether you work at LANL or not, this is a good resource for finding volunteer opportunities.

JustServe – JustServe is another website that advertises volunteer opportunities.

Nonprofit Catalog – Finally, if you have a specific interest, why not just contact your favorite nonprofit? The Los Alamos Community Foundation maintains a database of local nonprofits and you are free to contact them for volunteering needs.
