Rancho Los Alamitos Historic Ranch and Gardens (RLA) in Long Beach is a unique 7.5-acre National Register historic site and is a living example of local history and culture.

In addition to being a fun and beautiful place to visit, RLA is a rewarding and exciting place to volunteer!  The RLA Volunteer Service Council (VSC) is the heart and soul of our operations, helping us care for and share this important part of Long Beach with the world. If you're interested in joining the Rancho Los Alamitos family, then we look forward to getting to know you! 

Please fill out the online application to join us at our Virtual Volunteer Welcome and Orientation Zoom. 

During the Zoom Orientation and Welcome, we'll orient you to the site as well as its impressive history. You'll meet current volunteers, learn about all the jobs that volunteers do to support the Rancho Los Alamitos Foundation's mission and vision, and about the volunteer openings that are currently available.* This Zoom meeting is sure to get you excited and feel well prepared for your first volunteer shift at Rancho Los Alamitos.

and contribute to the “special feeling” and authenticity that is found here. Through their creative efforts, our many volunteers support every facet of Ranch activity.

The purpose of the RLA Volunteer Program is to facilitate public support and community engagement through education, site maintenance and preservation, community outreach, and special event support. Volunteers provide services that include docent led school tours, guest hospitality, and specialized collections care in the historic structures and gardens.

At Rancho Los Alamitos you are certain to find a welcoming place to share your skills, talents, enthusiasm, and time. Our volunteer service areas offer a variety of opportunities, time commitments, and training to suit your interests and needs.

All of our volunteers are encouraged to be RLA Members and to participate in our outstanding Volunteer community, the Volunteer Service Council.
