About the Volunteer Program

The City of Sacramento's Volunteer Program encompasses opportunities in a wide variety of departments:

  • Charter Offices
  • Community Development 
  • Convention, Culture and Leisure 
  • Economic Development
  • Finance
  • Fire
  • General Services
  • Human Resources 
  • Information Technology
  • Mayor and City Council
  • Police
  • Public Works
  • Utilities

Volunteers provide a broad source of expertise, talent, and manpower for City programs. Volunteers gain new skills, meet new people, make use of talents, develop greater knowledge and understanding of city government, help solve community issues, secure job references, explore career possibilities and gain personal satisfaction of making a difference in their community.

Volunteers assist with special events, animal care, gardening, tours, arts and crafts, child development, and much more.   Some departments can utilize volunteers as young as 12, while others require the volunteer to be at least 21.  Short-term options include helping with fairs, festivals, sports activities, adopt-a-park clean-ups and other one-day events. On-going opportunities offer the chance to work with animals as well as youth and seniors. Unpaid internships and group options are also available.
