Volunteerism is  the practice  of volunteering  one's  time  or  talents  for charitable,  educational, or other worthwhile activities, especially in one's community. The Volunteer Center of Kern County takes this to heart and it is part of the fundamental foundation. Each volunteer is valued and their volunteer hours are appreciated by so many. 

"The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others." - DeAnn Hollis

ABOUT US

The Volunteer Center of Kern County has been in operation since 1972. As a pioneer in the field of volunteerism, our offices and staff strive for excellence. The volunteer Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Here at the Volunteer Center of Kern County we work hard to match volunteers with organizations and businesses whose focus is community and giving back. 

With a battery of volunteers and key staff members, we are fortunate enough to build upon our mission. From sponsoring our annual Keep Kern County Cool Fan Drive for seniors to training volunteers in preparation for manning an Emergency Volunteer Center in the event of a disaster, we engage every opportunity to get  people together and involved.
