The Civic Center Volunteers program connects community volunteers with their local county government.
MarinShares: Marin County Volunteers connects volunteers with a dynamic range of opportunities made possible through the workings of the county. The MarinShares program -- originally Civic Center Volunteers -- serves County of Marin departments at the Civic Center in San Rafael, CA, and area offices in Novato, Lucas Valley, east San Rafael, and beyond. Volunteer sites include library branches, fire lookout towers, open space trails, parks, Sheriff's facilities, and more. The program was started by the Marin County Board of Supervisors in 1979, so volunteers have enhanced county services for 40 years. Last year, volunteers and interns served more than 250,000 hours.
