What We Do

Connect Volunteer Professionals in the Los Angeles Area

New to the field or just looking to meet others in the field for advice? DOVIA-LA is the connector for volunteer management professionals across the Greater Los Angeles Area.

Provide Training for Members

We hold six in-person training meetings each year which include workshops from experts and – our biggest event of the year – Education Day! A full day of workshops each in September which feature top-notch speakers.

Expand our Capacities

Learn best practices locally and across the nation  while sharing resources with other members and organizations so you don’t have to ‘reinvent the wheel.’ Sharing knowledge, we can accomplish more for our organizations’ missions.
