Volunteers and Interns: Who We Are

The Los Angeles County Department of Consumer and Business Affairs (DCBA) helps over 400,000 consumers each year. We can provide so much quality service to the public thanks in large part to the dedicated people in our Volunteer and Internship Program (VIP).

Our volunteers and interns are a valuable asset to DCBA. They offer a wide range of talents and expertise. The time and excellent work they give saves the County over a half-million dollars a year.

As a DCBA volunteer or intern, you can work directly with our staff with:

  • Consumer and Small Claims Court counseling
  • Mediation
  • Investigations
  • Special projects
