The Southern California Section has many Community Outreach activities. National Chemistry Week and Chemists Celebrate Earth Day are both National ACS celebrations of varying themes to reach out to students and the community about different aspects of chemistry in our world. National Chemistry Week is a week-long celebration in October and Chemists Celebrate Earth Day is in April.
Expanding Your Horizons is a yearly event for middle-school girls to encourage STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Women chemists are encouraged to volunteer to help present these events to girls.
The Boy Scout Expo is a great volunteer event to help young scouts achieve their chemistry merit badge.
