Scholarship Selection Committee

February-March 2018
Last year, the Fulfillment Fund distributed $356,750 in scholarships to students. We are looking for volunteers to help us read, review, and evaluate scholarship applications. After all scores have been analyzed independently by volunteers we will convene for group assessments. The total time commitment for this volunteer opportunity is usually around 8-10 hours. 

Student Networking Mixer

April 2018 @ Gertz Ressler High School
Have you found networking to be helpful in your career? Help high school seniors learn the art of networking! Come mingle and share your professional experience with our students as they practice this critical skill before they embark on their college journey. 

Mentor a Student

Ongoing
For more than two decades, the Fulfillment Fund has matched students with caring, committed adult mentors who help support our students on their paths to high school graduation and a successful transition to college.  Mentors are thoughtfully paired with their student and receive support and guidance from Fulfillment Fund staff throughout the mentoring relationship.  Visit our mentor page for more information.

Are you 55 or older? We want you to mentor!

Mentoring a young person can be a life-changing experience for both our students and volunteers alike. As a senior, you are in a unique position to share a wealth of experience. Fulfillment Fund students are eager to build a friendship with and learn from their mentor, all while exploring what L.A. has to offer.

Organize a Donation Drive

Ongoing
With student events and programs running year round, we are searching for in-kind donations of items needed to support these programs.  Examples include gifts for student raffles (restaurant gift cards, electronics, tickets to sporting events or shows), food & beverage (water, breakfast items, healthy snacks), and school supplies (pens, paper, books).  If you have something you're interested in donating, please see our Wish List for more information.
