Volunteer Programs

Volunteers are vital to the success of our community.  Ongoing or one-time opportunities with the City of Springfield can accommodate individuals, families, groups, businesses and people of all ages and abilities.

We believe that:

  • Our community is strengthened by individuals who act on their commitment to help others.
  • Volunteering improves citizens’ accessibility to government.
  • Service is an effective strategy for solving problems.
  • Opportunities for all, foster a sense of community where everyone is valued and welcomed.
  • Volunteers strengthen our community, increase government effectiveness and create benefits for citizens, including being more informed, engaged, and feeling valued and appreciated.
