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 have a vision and we are on a mission.

National Volunteer Recognition Week
National Volunteer Week is powered by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, and provides the opportunity to celebrate the impact of volunteer service and the power of volunteers to come together to build stronger, more resilient communities.
In honor of National Volunteer Week, April 15 to 21, 2018, the City of Torrance would like to recognize and thank our over 5,200 volunteers who contributed over 46,000 service hours in 2017. This year’s theme, “Volunteers – United We Care”, is so fitting, as volunteers unite to participate in and care for the community by contributing their time and skills in various ways to supplement existing citywide programs, extend services, and initiate new and innovative programs that would not be provided otherwise. The programs our volunteers support provide for an enriching environment and high quality of life for the Torrance community.
The following volunteers have been recognized by their programs for their outstanding service and care for the community in 2017.
Barbara Smith: James Armstrong Theatre
Angi Bugg: Friends of Torrance Exceptional Athletes
Miriam Taeubel: Madrona Marsh Preserve
Sue Kneisley: Torrance Art Museum
