My son and I volunteered as visiting artists during a recent festival (I was demonstrating clay sculpture, and he was demonstrating origami). It was my first time working with the Westside Children's Center, and I was deeply impressed. The festival was well-organized and mission-driven in service to children and families. The space is already very beautifully rich with artwork, and the additional artwork and activities made specifically for the festival were vibrant and engaging. With crafts, games, food, live music and performances, and many community services available to attendees, I was proud to be a part of this wonderful event. I look forward to future involvement!
I've volunteered with Westside Children's Center a few times and their programming, staff, and mission make it worth every second. WCC has such an expansive reach in the community that it's a little overwhelming to think about how many lives they've touched, even secondhand. I'm truly grateful for the work they do; our whole community is better for it.
I volunteered for the first time at the children’s festival this year and it was a wonderful experience. I helped lead an art activity and got to see so many other cool activities they had for the kids like painting, caricatures, and face painting. The performances were great and I am so excited that I wa referred to this charity to volunteer.
Really nice and hardworking staff and other volunteers who care a lot about children’s well being. Their pre-school is very beautiful too.
I have volunteered for events including the arts festival. I was very happy to be involved in an event that was so well received by the local community.
I hope to continue to be in involved and donate with this wonderful non profit organization.
Westside Children’s Center is an impressive organization that positively impacts families in the LA area. I have volunteered/attended Westside’s Arts Festival the past few years. It is an amazing event full of fun, food, information, and services for the community.
I have volunteered for WCC in connection with Big Hearts and Arts Festival. I've been impressed with the professionalism of the staff, particularly the event organizers. At Arts Festival, in particular, they go above and beyond to reach out to and involve the community.
This is a great organization to work with! Had an amazing time volunteering and will join again next year. Staff was friendly and my overall experience was excellent.
Westside children's center is an incredible organization that is truly changing the lives of children and families.
This is a wonderful organization! I was lucky enough to volunteer at their children's festival this year and it was so much fun. They put on a beautiful event and there were so many smiling faces. I hope to be able to volunteer there again soon.
A great organization. The staff and services they provide are outstanding.
Westside Children’s Center is a wonderful nonprofit and an integral piece of our community. Volunteering there has allowed me the priceless opportunity to watch young children develop with each other, learning the foundations for respect, creativity, problem solving, and teamwork.

We began our journey with WCC in 2012 when my daughter Aylin attended the center, we were always very pleased with how she was treated and how involved they encourage the parents to be. My wife and I volunteered as much as possible. Now that my son Sebastian attends the center we have had nothing but great experiences, the one and only concern my wife and I have had is that the Director has not made herself available to all parents and we still have yet to know what she looks like. Otherwise we are so happy to have our son enrolled and will continue to try and volunteer when we have the time.
Westside Children's Center in Culver City is an amazing early education center. All the staff members all always willing to help. The way that the program is set up gives every child that come through here an advantage, the children get to learn an array of things, they are able to get ready to go to school. They are very hands on with the kids. Once you have been with Westside Children's Center you will be glad you have become a part of this program.
We are foster parents to 3 beautiful boys. Our story began when I wanted to become a volunteer at Westside. here is were I found out more information about foster care. A couple months later my partner and I found ourselves in an orientation meeting starting our process to foster/adopt.
My son Matthew recently graduated fro,m Westside Children Center and loved it! Now my younger son Max is attending Monday - Friday. They both always looked forward to waking up for "school". All teachers and staff are so loving and caring so I can see why. The campus and classrooms are always very clean and we never had any issues with other classmates or "accidents". We look forward to enrolling our 1yr old daughter next year. I always highly recommened WSCC to our friends who also have young children.
My son recently volunteered at the Westside Children's Center during the Arts Festival. It was a wonderful opportunity for him to complete two hours of community service as part of his High School requirements, and also to give back to the community in our neighborhood. He helped set up the event, and had a very nice volunteering experience in a safe and friendly environment. He was also very appreciative to receive lunch there. :)) Registration in the morning was very easy, the volunteer coordinator was really nice, and it was also very easy to get the community service form signed. We will be looking for more opportunities to volunteer at this nonprofit.
I had a great time and saw lots of happy kids with their families at the Annual Arts Festival while volunteering for this group. They had so many art, music, educational and health services for the children and all had fun while participating. Very organized and inspiring day and staff. Thank you!!
