A beautiful day in the neighborhood sometimes requires a little help from our neighbors. Come Downtown to help beautify the sidewalks and public areas with some tidying up. We’ll be on litter patrol, cleaning benches, pulling weeds, and removing graffiti. This is a great way to show your support for our locally-owned small businesses and demonstrate your community pride.

COMMITMENT: 2-3 hours

HELPFUL SKILLS: Eagerness to help; awareness of surroundings

AGE MINIMUM: Typically 10 years, but we try to schedule a project to include littles every couple of months


Look for upcoming events


The day of an event is when we need all hands on deck to keep things running smoothly. The goal is always to make it look effortless to the participants. But the truth is, it usually takes dozens of volunteers supporting an event to pull it off. If you or your group would like to help with anything from cookie decorating to street closures, we would love to have you. 

COMMITMENT: One shift, 4-8 hours long. Sometimes training in advance.

HELPFUL SKILLS: Basic people skills; a variety of other skills, depending on the position

AGE MINIMUM: 12 to 14 years, depending on the position

PARTNERS: Varies by event

Look for opportunities


Looking for an off-site opportunity to bond with your coworkers? Have a group of youth that want to give back to their community? We would love to match you up with a project that fits your time frame and abilities. Projects range from collecting information to getting down and dirty cleaning benches and other amenities.

COMMITMENT: 2-4 hours. Add lunch at a Downtown restaurant and a scavenger hunt to make a full day out of it. 

HELPFUL SKILLS: Eagerness to help. Team spirit

AGE MINIMUM: We can create a project for groups with kids as young as 5 years

PARTNERS: Varies by project

Ask for details



Whether you want to take on a solo project, be part of a passionate team, or lead a team of creative volunteers, you can be part of something real. We have projects waiting for volunteers and are always interested in hearing your ideas. Projects range from construction and art installations to retail campaigns and program development. This is can be a good option for senior projects or scouts seeking their leadership awards. 

COMMITMENT: 16 to 100 hours, depending on the project 

HELPFUL SKILLS: Passion, problem-solving; coordination

AGE MINIMUM: 14 years (or high school freshmen)

Share your idea


We love hosting interns. High school-level positions help provide opportunities for teens looking to explore potential career paths. These roles include customer service training, taking on responsibilities that support the organization, and experience completing a variety of general business tasks. College-level positions are available for high school graduates looking to take on projects or roles to build their resumes and start building their professional network.

COMMITMENT: 20 to 150 hours, depending on availability and position

HELPFUL SKILLS: Willingness to try out new things; eagerness to learn

AGE MINIMUM: 14 years (or high school freshman) for high school positions; 18 years (or high school diploma/GED) for college-level positions

COMMITMENT: 20 to 150 hours, depending on availability and position

HELPFUL SKILLS: Willingness to try out new things; eagerness to learn

AGE MINIMUM: 14 years (or high school freshman) for high school positions; 18 years (or high school diploma/GED)

Events obviously can’t coordinate themselves, so we rely on dedicated volunteers who are looking to make a significant contribution by organizing and leading one of our community events, including Block Party in July, Safe n Sane Halloween in October, and the Holly Days Celebration each December. Teams typically form four to six months before an event and meet monthly. With plenty of staff support, teams divvy up responsibilities and put on amazing events!

COMMITMENT: 30 to 120 hours depending on role

HELPFUL SKILLS: Organization and dedication

AGE MINIMUM: 16 years (or high school junior)
