Neighborhood Services - Community Volunteer Program

The goal of the Community Volunteer Program is to improve the quality of life for Glendale residents and volunteers through valuable public service projects.

The Glendale City Council created this fantastic program as a one-year pilot project in 1998. The reason for starting such a program was simple—involving Glendale residents and community groups in volunteer service projects develops a healthier, more livable city!

The program is now an ongoing city service which gives volunteers a sense of pride by contributing to improvements in the community. In the years since the program was created, Glendale has benefited greatly from these projects. Since 1998, more than 25,000 volunteers have contributed nearly 95,000 volunteer hours, which are valued at more than $1.7 million. Click here to see a Community Volunteer position description.

Community volunteer projects are designed for large groups of volunteers. The average size of a group is about 25. So gather your friends, relatives or co-workers and become involved in the community. Individual volunteers are welcome to contact the office about volunteer opportunities and join a group of volunteers to help out in the community.

To register to volunteer with Neighborhood Services, email or call 623-930-2663.

Please note that we do not assist those who must complete court-ordered community service. Click here for information about court-ordered community service options elsewhere in the City of Glendale.

News and Events

rose pruning

2018 Update
Since the beginning of the year, we have had two service projects: Historic Rose Pruning and Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service.  On January 6th, 30 volunteers helped to winter prune the 400+ rose bushes at Historic Sahuaro Ranch Park. Pruning the rose bushes allows for dead or diseased wood to be removed and also invigorates the bushes for abundant growth in the spring. In partnership with HandsOn Phoenix, 225 volunteers donated their time on Martin Luther King, Jr., Day of Service to pick citrus from the trees at Sahuaro Ranch Park.  A total of 11,472 pounds was collected during the 3 hour event and donated to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance for use in their emergency food boxes.
