“Volunteering at the Ventura Visitors Center is fun and rewarding. I like that I can give back to Ventura by supporting our tourism industry. I enjoy meeting and sharing Ventura with the many people who drop in from other cities, states and countries. The Visitors Center staff members are great to work with, and often show their appreciation for my time and effort. It’s definitely not like “work.” -Linda Windsor
