Impact Volunteering

Cities of Service is a coalition of nearly 200 cities whose mayors are committed to using volunteer service to solve local pressing challenges. Many cities hire chief service officers to drive and increase the reach and impact of their efforts. From helping to decrease high school dropout rates to increasing energy efficiency in city buildings, coalition members work together, learn from each other, establish and replicate best practices to improve lives in their cities, across the United States, and around the world.

At the core of Cities of Service are the community members who step up to volunteer to make improvements in their own cities. These volunteers work one-on-one with struggling students, dig dirt to plant community gardens to help feed their neighbors, get trained and certified in CPR to be ready for potential emergencies, paint over thousands of square feet of graffiti, and much more.
