Would you recommend Children Youth and Family Collaborative?
by Ruth W. from Los Angeles, CA(Administrator for this Organization)(January 20, 2011)
I took part in their Christmas In November event and was amazed by how hard the staff worked and made volunteers feel very welcomed.
Everything was very organized and volunteers were never left guessing what they should do next.
I definitely recommend this opportunity to volunteers in the LA area looking to do something. They have over 23 locations to choose from.
