Young & Healthy depends on the help of more than 350 professional healthcare volunteers in our community to provide free healthcare to needy underserved children. These professional volunteers agree to see children in their own private offices, on a rotating basis, at no charge to the patient or to Young & Healthy. Each volunteer provider commits to the services he or she is able to donate and has the option to accept our referral calls only when convenient for them and their staff.
When I hear personally that toothaches are the #1 reason why kids miss school, I find it is important for us to be there to help these kids that have no other resources.

Because our professional volunteers provide direct services in their private offices, Young & Healthy does not have any clinical-based community volunteer opportunities within our administrative office. However, we are dependent on and very grateful for the assistance of over 460 community volunteers who donate their time to assist with events or projects in our office. Opportunities vary in time commitment, can be short or potentially long-term. Volunteer commitments can be either a single project or event, or can be ongoing tasks.
I’m honored to be a part of such a fantastic organization like Young & Healthy that goes above and beyond to help those in the community that need it most.
Michelle A., Office Intern from Cal State Los Angeles
Young & Healthy’s model is simple: people helping people. We believe that our mission can best be accomplished through collaboration with other community institutions. We make it a point to know our community and be known in the community so that knowledge and resources may be maximized among our community partners to assist the greatest number of our neighbors in need.

All Saints Church is proud to have helped create Young & Healthy years ago. Our community was experiencing a great need then – as it is today – and that need is access to high-quality healthcare. When children are healthy and cared for, their quality of life improves. Young & Healthy is making our community better by serving one child at a time.
Juliana Serrano, Sr. Associate, Peace & Justice and Office of Creative Connections, All Saints Church
In the Pasadena community, 33% of children are in need of the kind of care Young & Healthy provides.
Your generosity can make the difference in getting a child a pair of reading glasses, setting a broken leg or getting needed dental work. For as little as a $33 pledge, you can assist Young & Healthy with the children it serves.
