The Call to Action for ALL Californians
Governor Newsom’s call to action wasn’t only for private residents it was to business owners, nonprofit leaders, and Californians of all walks of life alike. Whether you’re participating or facilitating a service project – there’s a way for everyone to get involved! We are specifically asking that organizations serving the homeless register volunteer opportunities here.
Organizations Wishing to Host a Service Project
We want you to be an official partner of Governor Newsom’s office for this historic event by submitting one volunteer opportunity (or more!) for the day of action. The day of action is focused on addressing homelessness, and your organization is one of the best.
To register an opportunity:
- Go to www.dayofaction.goldenvolunteer.com/register/organization to create an account
- Create an opportunity for March 31st so that Californians can sign-up and volunteer!
- Submit an opportunity by: March 20, 2020
- Volunteer Day: March 31
- Time frame: up to you!
- Opportunity content: something that is part of your regular program. No need to invent something new!
- Volunteer capacity: the bigger the better, but smaller events are great too!
- Number of submissions: totally up to you!
We highly encourage you to submit Volunteer Opportunities that are part of your normal course of business. We will be publicizing this day of service widely in the media and online, and we are thrilled to have your participation.
Businesses Getting Involved
The call to action encourages business to take employees out to volunteer. These are excellent opportunities to build on working relationships and create a culture of service among staff.
You can identify a nonprofit in your community by visiting www.californiavolunteers.ca.gov/homelessness. You can get in touch and create a service project that best suits your time and needs.
California Volunteers will be developing a media kit that you can utilize to communicate about the day of action. This includes but is not limited to social media graphics, talking points, facts and figures, and more…learn more.
Reach out to us if you have any questions about the César Chávez Day of Action – whether volunteering or wanting to facilitate a service project. Do so by contacting email@example.com.
