Welcome to Better Bako

If you were a citizen of Bakersfield, CA (like you might be) and you were looking for an opportunity to make a difference in your own backyard, where would you look to find a place to volunteer?

We are creating this website in response to a need that we see for an online community that can bring together local nonprofit organizations with citizens of Bakersfield who are looking to make a difference.  We're not exactly sure what Better Bako might become, but we figure it's worth giving it a try to see what might develop. 

Are you a local nonprofit organization?  We would love to help you spread the word about the volunteer opportunities that you have.

Are you a citizen of Bakersfield who is looking for a hands-on way to make a difference?  We would love to help point you in the right direction and connect you to an organization that is pursuing positive change in our community.

Better Bako seeks to be a community of people working together toward a better Bakersfield for all.  Would you join us?  We hope you will!
