Get Involved

The director of a small, grassroots non-profit located in Oakland is in urgent need of a volunteer to assist with administrative tasks, such as responding to emails, preparing simple correspondence, returning calls from voicemail, internet searches, etc.

Any amount of time you can give would be greatly appreciated.

We are also looking for volunteers with grant writing experience.


Here is a brief description of CRECE’s programs:

  1.  A youth empowerment group that meets every week to discuss and keep the youth informed of the political aspects taking place in their community and how would be best to address the issues
  2.  A soccer program for children ages 8-12.
  3. Parenting classes
  4. Annual events directed towards children in the community:
    • Easter celebration, where children receive gift baskets and treats
    • Christmas festivities and children receive toys
    • Mother’s Day event spent sharing a day of music, food, gifts, raffles and more with mothers from the community.
    • A solidarity Project called “Bringing Hope” to poor, rural communities in El Salvador.
