The City of Pacific Grove's Volunteer Program is designed for people of many skills and interests. As a City of Pacific Grove volunteer, you will have the opportunity to contribute your unique talents and energy toward providing a richer quality of life for your community. You will also meet other community members with similar interests and work with our professional staff who directly provide municipal services.

City government is an extension of the power of local residents. This city belongs to our citizens. Through your involvement, we can all ensure a successful community.

The Volunteer Program is a work in progress with the flexibility to expand and change as needs demand. We welcome any and all input regarding services and opportunities for willing volunteers. Please feel free to offer recommendations and/or suggestions to the Volunteer Program Coordinator.
