The City of Gilroy’s Volunteer Service Program is built on the belief that both the volunteer and the City can benefit from a partnership. Volunteers with knowledge, interest or special skills, can provide valuable assistance to City in completing projects and implementing programs. Volunteers can share their experience with city staff in developing or planning City programs, activities or special events.in a team effort.
The City welcomes the participation from all segments of our community and believes that volunteers involved in city projects will acquire a better understanding and appreciation of how their government works. Volunteer involvement can also strengthen neighborhoods, the community and encourage business partnerships with city government. Everybody wins!
