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.

 

Physicians, Specialists, and Licensed Providers

We need volunteers from all medical fields, including, but not limited to Physicians, Specialists, Dentists, Pharmacists, Psychiatrists, and Registered Dietitians. We are open Monday-Friday mornings, afternoons, and evenings with locations throughout the Westside of Los Angeles. Some providers volunteer once a week, while others come once a month. We schedule according to your availability and as space allows.

Please complete a Volunteer Provider Application to get started.

General, Clinical, and Administrative Volunteers

Venice Family Clinic offers many different volunteer roles across 12 sites. To learn more about the Clinic, the work that we do, and how you can help support patients in need, you must attend a Volunteer Information Session. For these clinical and administrative roles, we ask volunteers to commit to a regular weekly schedule. The minimum commitment is 4 shifts per month for at least 6 months.

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.
