The Day at the Beach “Adopt a Child for One Day” Annual Event is an extraordinary experience during which over 300 at-risk children are paired on a one-on-one basis with over 300 volunteers for a day of fun, sun and friendship!
The purpose of our annual Day At The Beach "Adopt a Child for One Day" is to bring the community together through an easy and memorable event that allows adults to mentor, give back and share time and hope with underprivileged children living in our nearby communities (cities include South Central Los Angeles, Compton, Watts and Long Beach).
Our goal is to give positive experiences to both the child and the volunteer by uniting over 600 people: 300 community volunteers share a day filled with one-on-one love, hope and laughter with over 300 at-risk children ages 5 to 12 from local shelters, schools and the Department of Child and Family Services.
We provide the at-risk children and mentors with all the needed items for this day of fun, including t-shirts, boogie boards, backpacks with school items, food, drinks, toys and games, as well as access to chair massages, face painting, surf lessons, make-up lessons, and relay races.
Thank you to our 2016 Sponsors!
Registration for our 17th Annual Day at the Beach Event will open May 1, 2017.
