Volunteers are an integral part of KYCC. We are dedicated to engaging with members of our community to create real change through our many volunteer opportunities. In 2018, we had over 2,700 volunteers! There are many ways to get involved through KYCC programs and events. Whether you are a high school student or a business professional, your time and expertise can help strengthen our community.
Please note, the majority but not all of our volunteer programs are on hold due to COVID-19. However, please feel free to sign up so that as soon as they re-open we can contact you to see if you’re still able and interested in getting involved with us.
If you can’t find an opportunity that suits you, feel free to contact us as we are also at times able to craft other positions based on our programs, needs, and your talents. We look forward to hearing from you!
Due to the recent pandemic KYCC’s phone lines have been inundated with calls for help in filing for unemployment benefits. We are particularly in need of bilingual Korean/English volunteers to provide one-on-one guidance to our community members.
All activities can be done from the safety of home with KYCC staff to train and support you along the way.
Volunteers must be at least 21+ years of age and bilingual Korean/English.
