Featured Opportunity

Benton Park West Tree Care Blitz

Come snack, socialize, and transform street trees. Make a lasting environmental and community impact, meet great people, and learn about tree care. Trees are critical to human well-being, but city street trees often need routine care to be good neighbors. Volunteers will mulch, water, and sometimes prune.

Group Engagement Opportunities

A key facet of our Volunteer Center is our team engagement opportunities, two main offerings Service2Go program and coordinated projects.  

Coordinated projects are perfect for small teams: the Volunteer Center will play matchmaker with one of our trusted nonprofit partners to find groups an impactful half or full day of service in the community.
