Volunteer for Single Events

We host events for families and community members quarterly. Volunteers are critical in helping us spread the word, phone bank, organize materials, food preparation/serving, organizing games/activities, shuttle participants to/from BART, set-up and clean-up, and much more. Volunteers are asked to give 1-2 hours of their time.

Help us at one of our events such as our annual Día de la Familia, LGBTQ events such as Pride, and cultural events such as Día de los Muertos. It will be fun and you will meet great people!

Learn more about how organizations run by helping us research funding opportunities, put together letters of intent and proposals, and grassroots fundraising.

Grow acceptance in your community. Help us create educational materials, coordinate educational presentations, and work with other organizations.

Become a Volunteer-at-Large

This volunteer role is for folks that want to participate on an ongoing basis with Somos Familia but do not wish to be assigned to a specific committee or event.  As a volunteer-at-large, you will be given the opportunity to assist us in delivering services, fundraising, or acting as an ambassador on behalf of our services to the community at-large.

As a volunteer, you will be invited to our volunteer nights out and social gatherings (movies, museums, and happy hour socials).

What volunteers are saying

Somos Familia changed my relationship with my parents for the positive. This motivated me to get more involved. I love organizing our activities along with my friends.


Magdy Angel-Hurtado

Sometimes after a day of work showing up to a Somos Familia activity is like showing up to a friend's house, full of love, joy and gratitude.
