Santa Monica is full of opportunities for those who like to volunteer their time. Doing volunteer work is a great opportunity to learn and grow as a person. I have personally volunteered in several different organizations from animal rescues to working with children. I would never take any of it back. It was so fulfilling to me as a kid growing up, as a teenager looking for something or someone to look up to, and as an adult struggling to find balance in an very imbalanced world. Volunteering your time and even your kids time is a wonderful way to experience the world.

Here is a list of some of the organizations where you can make a difference by giving back by giving up some of your time.
