Mission Statement

Welcome to the City of Berkeley's Volunteer page for Recreation Division programs. Here at the City of Berkeley, we pride ourselves in continually offering exciting, interactive, and fun activities for all ages in the Berkeley community. If you have the desire to make a difference in the lives of others, you’ve come to the right place. Our Volunteer Program directly enhances the relationship amongst community members in the City of Berkeley. You can provide a direct impact through your donation of time, talents, and energy to our special events, classes, and programs. Volunteers have a tremendous impact on the overall success of the Recreation Division and allow us to continue providing quality programs to the public. We value your participation and couldn’t do it without you!


Berkeley has welcomed individual and group volunteers for many years. Members of the community have dedicated hours of service to our city by volunteering at special events, parks and activities, which help promote a sense of community, by bringing people together to make this city a wonderful place to live, work, and play.

Volunteer projects vary throughout the year. There’s always a need for all types of skills and experience, so you don’t need to be an expert to apply. The program is flexible, matching available opportunities to your talent and availability. Whether you’re an individual interested in ongoing projects or a group wishing to participate in a particular event, you can help provide vital services and support to many departments within the Recreation Department.
