To vigorously promote volunteer involvement and initiate community engagement in an equitable, authentic, and intentional manner while fostering stewardship of our community’s parks, recreation, and community programs.
In April 1997, the city officially launched its first formal volunteer program - Volunteer Thornton - to oversee ongoing volunteer operations. Volunteer Thornton was created to manage volunteers who assist in implementing programs and services in various city departments. Today, Thornton is distinguished by the spirit of its citizens who are actively involved in promoting the welfare of the community and this spirit of involvement is at the very foundation of our community. Volunteers are essential to preserving Thornton’s quality of life and making it a more rewarding and nurturing place to live and work.
