Volunteer Opportunities: Ongoing Programs
Camp David Gonzales
WHAT IS CAMP DAVID GONZALES? Camp David Gonzales is a probation facility, including a school, for young males sentenced by the Los Angeles County probation system. The campers come from extremely diverse backgrounds prior to their assignment. Camp David is located in Malibu Canyon about 10 minutes from Pepperdine.
WHERE DO I FIT IN? Volunteers work with the School at Camp David Gonzales in efforts to establish positive relationships between volunteer tutors and the students, while working to enhance the learning capabilities of students in the classroom. The interaction between student and tutor stimulates learning of academics and future life-skills. The young men at Camp David, aided by the volunteer tutors, are afforded the opportunity to rehabilitate their minds and work towards becoming productive members of society.
The program requires a semester long commitment of one visit each week.
