Get involved and make a difference! Volunteers are a vital part of healthy and growing communities, and you can donate your time, services, and talents or contribute money to meaningful causes.
Many services in your community such as food and blood banks, parks and nature trails, and emergency relief services stay in operation mainly through volunteer efforts.
Volunteer With State Agencies
Over a dozen state agencies offer volunteer positions that range from administrative work done at a desk to hands-on efforts in the field. Volunteers have assisted with tasks such as search and rescue, transcribing documents for the state archives, serving as a tour guide at the State Capitol, and more. You are bound to find an opportunity that’s perfect for you.
You can ensure that the parks, trails, and natural habitats you love are well-maintained for all to enjoy by pitching in outdoors. There are opportunities to be a host at a state park or campground, join in on trail maintenance work parties and beach cleanups, and participate in group efforts with your school or business. You can even earn a free Discover Pass once you’ve completed a required number of volunteer hours!
