Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Giving Children Hope!
Our volunteer hours are Monday through Friday 8:30am-12pm and 12:30pm-4pm.
Before you schedule a time to volunteer, please try to attend one of our orientations. Our orientations are only an hour in length and they take place at our main address every first Wednesday of the month at 3:30 pm. This is a good time for you to:
1. Complete a Volunteer Application.
2. Learn more about the history of Giving Children Hope and how YOU can make a difference.
3. Meet other volunteers.
4. Receive a tour of our 43,000 square foot facility.
5. Discuss your schedule and set up your first volunteer appointment.
You must RSVP with SueLynn before you attend an orientation. You can either email her or you can call 714.523.4454, ext. 106.
Due to recent changes in our volunteer program, we are currently not accepting any elementary, junior high, or high school student volunteers. If you’d like to volunteer as a school or church youth group, please contact SueLynn at [email protected]

Throughout the year, we have several special projects that need volunteer support. Please see our Seasonal Volunteer Opportunities.
Other Ways to Get Involved
We know that our volunteers are extremely busy and can’t always find time to make it to Giving Children Hope headquarters. In addition, we know that many of you have specific skills that you would like to put to good use for a cause. Please check out these other opportunities and let us know how you would like to help out:
Community Service Hours
We welcome court-appointed individuals needing to complete community service hours. Please download our Community Service Application and contact Laurette Zapata or call 714.523.4454 to schedule an appointment. PLEASE NO WALK-INS!
International Volunteer Opportunities
At this time, Giving Children Hope does not send teams to other countries, but we can connect you to our partners in the field who occasionally have a need for volunteers. If you are interested in participating in an opportunity like this, please contact SueLynn Yoo.
Please refer to our Volunteer Handbook for all of our volunteer job descriptions, policies and procedures.
