The City's vision is "Building a GREAT Community Together"

Every year, hundreds of volunteers come to our city's parks, recreation centers and offices to give back to the community with their incredibly talented abilities. Volunteers from all different ages, and different backgrounds come together to enhance the importance of volunteer services supporting a variety of excellent programs and special events.

Are you motivated? Are you ready to show off your talent and abilities? There are lots of ways to make Redwood City a GREAT community...and we need your help.

Volunteers can perform a variety of duties, including:

  • Contributing to the beautification of a park, community center, Downtown Square and other public spaces.
  • Helping to restore a native environment, improve wildlife habitat and plant native plant materials.
  • Assisting people with disabilities so they can take part in recreation activities and special events.
  • Escorting seniors on day trips and serving refreshments at daily lunches.
  • Assisting in offices with such tasks as answering phones, arranging files and greeting visitors.
  • Improving the life of a child through recreation!
  • Tutoring children in after school programs

    Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals or groups such as schools, company engagements, and clubs. A large portion of our volunteers consist of students at high school and colleges seeking to fulfill a community service requirement. Our incredible staff are more than willing to verify your hours. Who knows? Perhaps after your requirements have been met, you'll find you'd like to continue volunteering for your community.

    "The ultimate expression of generosity is not in giving of what you have, but in giving of who you are."
