There are a number of different opportunities available to volunteer with Giving Children Hope. We would be honored if you considered us for your next volunteer event. We are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. We accommodate individuals and groups up to 100 people all throughout the week. In addition, we open for Saturday and evening volunteer events on an as needed basis.
Before you schedule a time to volunteer, please try to attend one our orientations. Our orientations are only an hour in length and they take place at our main address. This is a good time for you to:
1. Complete a Volunteer Application or a Student Volunteer Application for volunteers under age 18.
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.
Please let Drew, our Volunteer Coordinator, know which orientation you will be able to attend. You can either email him or you can call 714.523.4454, ext. 116.
Please see the calendar below for the schedule of our orientations and Saturday events.

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 Drew Bryson 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 Drew Bryson.
