The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program Advisory Council  sponsored a volunteer recruitment fair on Wednesday to thank our current volunteers for their dedication and support to our community and welcome others to the Burbank Volunteer Program

Our volunteer recruitment fair was the perfect occasion for volunteers of all ages to explore volunteer opportunities in this community. Over 35 Non-profit organizations and public agencies made themselves available to inform perspective volunteers of upcoming community service projects. These included Burbank: Police, Fire, Animal Shelter, Historical Society, YMCA, Temporary Aid, and Boys & Girls Clubs. Also “special annual projects” such as: Burbank Tournament of Roses, Burbank on Parade, Bike Angels and much much more.

The Advisory Council even sponsored the In-N-Out truck that provided wonderful food to all the guests.

As volunteers explored the information from agencies, local entertainment was being performing and there were several opportunity drawings!

Volunteers had the opportunity to network with other volunteers and see what wonderful programs are available in our community.

Students, families and older adults, totaling over 600 people, attended the fair.

We were thrilled with the response and the type of support we had to make this important event happen for our community.
