Around the City


Volunteering is a great way to make a difference in your community while making new friends, enriching city programs and acquiring new skills.

You are reaping the benefits of the city's volunteer program if:

  • Your children participate in parks and recreation youth athletic programs
  • Your fire hydrants are cleared of snow
  • Your family enjoys a walk through a clean neighborhood park
  • You participate in any of the many senior programs
  • You appreciate the beautiful flowers along Weaver Lake Road or Elm Creek Boulevard
  • You feel safer with community service officers at community or school events

As a volunteer, you will:

  • Meet new people
  • Gain job experience
  • Feel useful and important to the community
  • Make new friends
  • Stay active
  • Help others
  • Learn about city government and services
