About Volunteering

The Bay View Community Center is proud of its volunteer corp that is over 200 strong. Volunteers are at the heart of our Center. Without these caring and dedicated individuals we would not be here today. If you would like to become one of our volunteers, please see some of the kinds of opportunities listed below. In addition to these opportunities, we have one time event opportunities and custom volunteer opportunities determined by a volunteer's interests, talents and experience. Interested volunteers need to complete and submit our Volunteer Application. Once received, a staff member will contact the potential volunteer to schedule an interview.
