Volunteer

The She Ready Foundation wants YOU to volunteer. Sign up to be one of our volunteers with our program partners or directly with the foundation.

She Ready x CASA/LA

She Ready x CASA/LA  volunteers will be trained and paired with a child in the foster care system to ensure they have the services and support needed in the areas important to all children, including a stable home, education, and healthcare.  There are more than 30,000 kids in the foster care system in Los Angeles and many need the support of a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer.  Being a CASA  is such a rewarding experience and you don’t need any fancy degrees or titles to make a positive impact in the life of a child. Join Us!
