Volunteering with Opportunity Junction is fun and rewarding.We have a wide variety of opportunities -- everything from tutoring to delivering food to participants.

Volunteers help us with important tasks such as food bank distribution.

We ask all interested volunteers to fill out an application and attend one of our volunteer orientations. Upcoming volunteer orientations:

We greatly appreciate and value the commitment of each of our volunteers, who have provided over 3,000 hours of service this year! Volunteers like Patrick Speese, our May Volunteer Spotlight, allow us to provide essential services to the Contra Costa community. Get involved today and you could be our next volunteer spotlight!
