You Can Help
The City of Richmond, along with our community partners, offer a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for students, adults and seniors. You can choose to help run summer day camps for kids, volunteer with fun recreation, arts, heritage or sports programs, help out at a community or major special event, or be involved in a parks or environmental program. Whether you would like to explore career options, meet new people, build leadership skills or volunteer your time to help the community, there are a variety of short and long term volunteer opportunities all year round.
