Find Your Volunteer Opportunity

Venice Family Clinic’s heritage is built on a strong foundation of volunteers. We offer a variety of opportunities to get involved in nearly every aspect of the Clinic’s operations, including medical practice, social services, administration, and fundraising. We actively match the interests and experience of our volunteers with the Clinic’s needs. If you want to help, we have something for you to do.

One-Time Events and Projects

If you are unable to commit to a regularly scheduled shift with Venice Family Clinic, volunteering for our one-time events or projects might be ideal for you. Events include our Children’s Holiday Movie (volunteers needed in November and early December), Venice Art Walk & Auction (volunteers needed in May), and various community events throughout the year. Projects could also include hosting your own fundraiser or drive (books, clothing, or supplies) on behalf of the Clinic.

Email VFCvolunteer@mednet.ucla.edu for more information. Please include who you are (individual or group) and how you’d like to get involved.

Volunteer FAQs

We require volunteers to commit to volunteer with us for at least 12 hours/month for at least 6 months. You may serve more than 12 hours/month depending on the Clinic’s schedule needs. Most of our opportunities are limited to 18 years and older, though we have some limited opportunities for people 14+ years.

Most of our opportunities are limited to normal business hours: Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. We ask volunteers to commit to a regularly scheduled shift each week. For example, a volunteer can be scheduled for every Monday from 9am-12pm.

The first step to volunteering is signing up for a general information session. From here you will schedule a registration day interview, in which you will meet with a member of volunteer services. Following your interview we will place you in a volunteer role and get you started in the clinic. This entire process can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks.
