The Milpitas Volunteer Program welcomes volunteers of all ages to share their time and talents with the community. Volunteers assist with City events, community service programs, park cleanups and emergency readiness activities. Others serve on commissions and task forces or work on special projects related to their interests. The City and its residents benefit greatly from our volunteers’ service, which allows the City to provide enhanced customer service without increasing costs. Volunteers benefit, too. They have fun, meet friends and neighbors, gain skills and earn service credits or work experience.
The City maintains a database of hundreds of volunteers ready and willing to serve the community. We email monthly with a list of upcoming project and opportunities in the community. Volunteers choose which opportunities to respond to, based on their interests and availability. Volunteers under age 14 require parent or adult guardian supervision. Volunteers ages 18+ must have a Livescan fingerprint background clearance on file for certain volunteer activities. To request a Livescan appointment, call (408) 586-3090.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our regular in-person volunteer opportunities are temporarily on hold, but watch for new virtual volunteer opportunities and special projects each month!
For more information, contact Marketing Coordinator Ruby General, (408) 586-3206.
