Lend a Hand
Volunteering through the City is a great way to stay involved in the community and invest in it through a donation of personal time and labor. Citizen involvement and volunteer service is important to the City and the need for volunteers continues to increase as resources become even more limited. The Involved Citizens Active in Neighborhoods (ICAN) program allows the community to focus its efforts based on priorities and needs assessment and opportunities focus on education, neighborhood development, environmental conservation, and green initiatives throughout the city.
Involved Citizens Active in Neighborhoods (ICAN)
The Involved Citizens Active in Neighborhoods (ICAN) program is a working partnership with City departments and local nonprofit organizations to develop an easy route for residents who are interested in volunteering. ICAN promotes City initiatives while offering residents access to a wide range of volunteering opportunities through community partners.
