Taking Part

Architectural Resources Group is committed to our community.

It is important to us to support our staff in their efforts to volunteer their time outside of their professional lives. Whether it is working as a Leader with the Girl Scouts of America, donating time at the local SPCA, acting in a Board Member position with the Victorian Preservation Center of Oakland, or providing leadership for the Highland Park Heritage Trust or the Friends of the Southwest Museum (the first Museum of Los Angeles), our team is dedicated to making the world a better place.

Additionally, Architectural Resources Group is involved in annually sponsoring the following community non-profit groups as a firm.

Leap, Arts in Education
Leap, Arts in Education is a non-profit organization that provides quality arts education programs to children in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 1983, Leap has held the Sandcastle Contest, a lively and creative competition be¬tween teams of architects, engineers, contractors, designers, and elementary-school students. It is the largest sandcastle-building contest in Northern California.

ARG has been a proud sponsor and participant in the Leap Sandcastle Con¬test for over 20 years, helping to engage the community and encourage imagination and creativity in the elementary-school participants. Every year we look forward to collaborating with the fifth-grade students at John Yehall Chin Elementary in San Francisco. Rain or shine, Architectural Resources Group’s enthusiastic team is at Ocean Beach every year!

Compass Family Services
Since 2009, ARG has participated in the Compass Family Services Adopt-A-Family program. Each year we are matched with a family (typically a family of five to seven people) to sponsor for the holidays, though Compass Family Services serves the community all year round. When we are matched with a family, we learn their names, ages, stories, and hobbies. What a benefit this is because we know exactly who is receiving the gifts and this enables us to take care in selecting items we’re confident they will love and appreciate, giving the experience a more personal touch.
