And by joining our City volunteer team, you will share in an opportunity for self-development and self-fulfillment. 

Sign Up To Volunteer

The City, along with our dedicated community partners, host one-time and recurring volunteer projects.  We strongly encourage volunteers to pre-register for a project to ensure we have an accurate headcount and can communicate with you via email to confirm the project and any essential information so you and/or your group have a rewarding volunteer experience.

Registration is quick and easy and only requires your name, email address and whether you are signing up as an individual or as a group on behalf of your business, organization, or service club.
