Volunteer Programs with the City

Volunteers help extend the reach of our City programs and provide valuable connection to the community.  There is no minimum commitment required.  We want your participation to be convenient, matched to your interests, and most importantly, enjoyable.  If you have time and want to make good things happen in your community, now is the time to register and join the Volunteer Tumwater Program!

What are the benefits of volunteering?

A number of benefits are associated with volunteering for the City of Tumwater: 
  • Volunteering is a great way for friends and family to support the local community while having fun and being together.
  • Volunteering supports a healthier happier lifestyle.
  • Volunteering helps maintain and restore City parks and keeps the natural areas healthy for future generations to enjoy.
  • Environmental stewardship projects often take volunteers beyond the realm of regular clean-ups into broader areas of concern.
