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.
