Service Projects

Help Often. That's our middle name. If you're looking for a place to connect with your fellow Assemblers and do some good for the community, you've come to the right place!

If you're looking to get involved with the Sunday Assembly community itself, please email Or stop by the Social section to RSVP for events or propose a meet-up of your very own.

SALA service events aim to do good in our communities while cultivating a culture of service among attendees of Sunday Assembly LA. While live, in-person events whose purpose is fundraising for a charitable cause are welcome, event listings containing a direct link to contribute funds to outside organizations will not be approved. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Help Day @ Safe Place for Youth

    Safe Place outreach center outside area

    Join SALA volunteers at this amazing drop-in center, where we'll get to helping on one of the many projects that need doing: repainting walls, re-organizing their clothing supplies, restocking the SPY toiletry closet, etc. Hundreds of youth come through their doors each week looking for basic necessities and support.

    We've worked with them on a number of item drives and the youth homelessness count, and we're very excited about getting more involved this year. 

    Safe Place for Youth was founded in 2011 by a group of dedicated volunteers and Founder/Executive Director Alison Hurst, offering hot food, clothing and socks to homeless youth in Venice Beach from their cars. They prioritize low barriers for entry, harm-reduction, a trauma-informed approach, and the provision of a safe, supportive environment, offering a continuum of care that includes street outreach, drop-in services, case management, health and wellness, and education and employment programs. 

    This event it family-friendly. We're looking forward to seeing you there!
