Service in the City Volunteer Program

Welcome to Service in the City. We understand the importance and value of volunteering and are pleased to provide a program that will impact Salt Lake City in many positive ways. Service in the City volunteers will make meaningful connections with others, strengthen their community, and help the City solve problems.

There are many reasons to volunteer and even more rewards. Besides the meaningful impact to Salt Lake City, volunteering has many personal benefits such as gaining valuable skills, creating lasting friendships, sharing talents, helping to shape our community's future, learning about local government and building teamwork skills. In addition to the intrinsic benefits received, Service in the City volunteers will be invited to attend continuing education opportunities and receive discounts on city programs and services like park pavilion rental and ice skating.

To start volunteering, please search the opportunities to the left and find the right opportunity for you. Contact Amanda Anderson, Volunteer Coordinator, at amanda.anderson@slcgov.com or 801-535-6202. Email is the best way to stay up to date and informed about our upcoming projects.

The Division of Parks and Public Lands and Salt Lake City’s Volunteer Program, Service in the City, would like to thank Questar for adopting the 200 S to 900 S stretch of the Jordan River Parkway Trail. Thanks to this wonderful partnership and their many dedicated employee volunteer teams, Questar has contributed over 175 volunteer hours in 2013 by planting trees, pulling weeds, and cleaning up over 70 bags of trash from the trail.
