La Posada depends on paid staff and citizen volunteers to carry out its mission and provide for the needs of up to 100 farm workers and homeless men.
Necessary Volunteer Positions
When La Posada has specific, “must-have” volunteer positions to be filled, they’ll be listed here with responsibilitites & schedule information.
General Volunteer Opportunities
La Posada’s mission is of critical importance to the men we support and to our community. Our citizen volunteers make a huge difference, and volunteer opportunities abound. Here are some ideas, but if you’d like to find something specific you could volunteer for, please call La Posada and ask!
Do you like to entertain?
Consider gathering a few friends and hosting a simple “social hour” with some juice, soft drinks and appetizers to share with the men. Social hours are the second Wednesday of the month from 3:30-5:00 p.m.
Do you like to cook?
You and your friends or members of your organization could prepare a weekend or holiday dinner.
Are you computer-savvy?
We have two new Dell Latitude laptops. Would you like to help some of the men learn how to use the computers and do a job search?
Do you like welcoming people in person or on the phone?
We need receptionists in the office at La Posada for 3 hour periods of time, morning and afternoon, Monday-Friday. Light secretarial skills useful.
Do you have a large car or small pick up truck?
Would you like to pick up food donations from neighborhood stores, Von’s in Encinitas or from the San Diego Food Bank?
