Request a Group Volunteer Project

Are you part of a company, church, school or other group looking for a volunteer project this month? Interested in helping us conserve, protect and beautify our City's outdoor spaces? Great! We have opportunities for you at any one of our many park, open space or garden areas. Please email the group size and requested project date and time range to Amanda Anderson. If there is a specific area of the city you're interested in working in, indicate that. Please request projects at least a week and a half ahead of time.

If you're looking for volunteer projects for your group on a regular basis, consider joining our Adopt-a-Spot Program.

Crossing Guard Volunteer Program
Salt Lake City volunteer crossing guards will help ensure the safe crossing of school children by directing traffic and children at street intersections before and/or after school. This is a great, ongoing volunteer opportunity for those who enjoy working with children and interested in increasing neighborhood safety. Volunteer insterested in this position must be able to commit to volunteering for a full school year, from mid-August 2014 to early June 2015. Volunteers should have transportation to their crossing guard location, be able to lift at least 10 lbs, be comfortable standing and walking for an hour, and be available either between 7 and 8:30 am and/or between 2 and 3:30 pm. Volunteers can choose their schedule and can give time as little as once a week, or sign up for ten shifts a week - whatever works best and whatever they'll be able to commit to for the school year. For more information and to apply, please email Faith Martinez
