 The City of Torrance is always looking for individuals to volunteer within the city's various departments. Volunteers are completely essential because they provide the city with help and support in various aspects of  services provided for the community.  We could not hold up the high standards of these services without volunteers like YOU!


We encourage you to take a moment to read  through our volunteer opportunity descriptions to determine which volunteer opportunity fits your interests and schedule. When you have determined the volunteer opportunity that suits you best,  click on the application link and complete our online application.
