Veteran Resource Center Volunteers Needed (Exposition Park Branch)
24 people are interested
The Los Angeles Public Library is recruiting Veteran Resource Center volunteers to assist veterans and their families in obtaining resources related to health care, education, employment, housing, and other benefits that they have earned through military service.
Volunteers are asked to work two days a week for 90 minutes to 2 hours at a time.
The ideal volunteer for this assignment is familiar, or willing to become familiar, with the needs of veterans and the resources available to them, is a problem solver with excellent customer service, and is empathetic and patient. This would be an ideal opportunity for veterans but is open to any who have the indicated qualities. Bilingual is a plus but not required.
If you want to help combat homelessness and unemployment amongst veterans, aid in their access to healthcare and higher education, or are a veteran yourself, please consider volunteering at a Veteran Resource Center.
