Volunteering is a great way to serve your City, get to know other people, use the skills that you may have and learn a new skill. The City has a variety of opportunities for individuals and groups to get involved as volunteers.
Des Moines Parks, Recreation and Senior Services Department actively seek volunteers, community groups, scouts and businesses to assist with specific programs, events and park clean-ups. There are a wide variety of programs, projects and advisory committees to choose from. From ivy removal at Beach Park, to major building renovation projects, coaching, assisting with senior services programs and much more!
