L.A. Red Shield Community Center Scholarships

Every life deserves to shine. No one in need is turned away from the life-changing opportunities at The L.A. Red Shield Community Center through our Scholarship Program. The Red Shield is a safe haven for these children in one of L.A.’s poorest neighborhoods, and many of our families earn below the state of California's poverty line.  100% of the funds raised assist in providing our youth with spiritual, educational and athletic programs for those who need it most.

DONATE TO THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Become a volunteer today.

We have the perfect volunteer opportunity to meet your interests.

Volunteering is one of the most enjoyable things you'll ever do. Not to mention, one of the most fulfilling. Community Center volunteers are held to the same standards as our employees including application, background check, Child Safe training, and orientation.

Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic volunteer coaches who are interested in teaching youth sports. Our program goal is to create a positive environment that promotes self-confidence and self-esteem through the experiences we provide. The program is dedicated to providing all youth with the highest quality of recreation and educational experiences for boys and girls ages 6 to 12 years-old.

This is a great place to gain experience working with children, and improve communication and people skills. High school and college students can volunteer to receive service learning for their school.

Help keep kids on track in school! We need tutors for K-6 students in all subjects including writing skills, reading, math and science. All learning materials, both printed and digital, are provided. Tutoring hours are Monday–Friday, 3–4:30PM.

Volunteers can work any time during operational hours. Volunteers will assist customer service attendants, walk around program areas, greet members, answer questions, and make sure child safety guidelines are being followed. These volunteers help The Salvation Army provide a safe environment for our community.
