Get started on your 2016 resolutions and exercise your altruistic spirit by supporting the LightHouse through volunteering. We’ve got an orientation coming up on January 16th, so get your calendar out now.

How Can I Volunteer?
Many of our volunteers choose to work with our students as Personal Services Volunteers – perfect for someone who is looking for schedule flexibility and prefers to work one-on-one capacity. Are you located in the East Bay or Marin? We especially need friendly, dedicated volunteers to work with East Bay and Marin students – in fact, there are several students right now in need of additional assistance with reading mail, books, newspapers and periodicals; helping with letters and correspondence; organizing items in the household; grocery shopping and running errands and even attending cultural, social and sporting events.

If you’re more of an active person, sign-up to become a Fitness Volunteer Partner and go hiking, running and tandem biking with a LightHouse student.

We also need volunteers at our offices to help with administrative work or special research projects.

Our next orientation is scheduled for Saturday, January 16th. Please complete your volunteer registration today to attend our next orientation. To sign up, please email Justine Harris-Richburgh at or visit
