Is your group looking for an opportunity to serve your community and/or the City of Philadelphia?  We are here to assist you in designing a service opportunity that will connect your goals and mission with the needs of your fellow Philadelphians.

The Kenney Administration has made it a top priority for all Philadelphians to become more civically engaged.  It is through this effort that the Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service developed the Volunteer Engagement Program.

The purpose of the Volunteer Engagement Program is to serve as the City of Philadelphia's connector to large groups and service throughout Philadelphia.  We will work with you to source or create a service opportunity that provides your group with a desirable experience that aligns with your mission.

We work to build strong relationships with organizations who can provide volunteer opportunities all while connecting with large groups who want to do that service.  Be it a few hours, a day of service, or a week of service--we have found that most groups want to serve in a meaningful way that will impact communities that they thrive in.

Let us plan your group's next service opportunity!

To get started, please fill out our Request Questionnaire. Please submit this at least 30 days in advance of the date you would like to serve so that we have sufficient lead time to make your service as meaningful and impactful as possible.

Are you an organization that has a service opportunity for which you would like our help in soliciting volunteer support?

Please post your opportunity on our site and fill out our Request for Volunteer Support.
