Getting Started


Volunteering PhotoA Volunteer program operates much like the Human Resources Department. Volunteer positions are developed as needed by the Program Coordinator of the Volunteer Services in discussions with Department Heads and other designated Unified Government staff. A job description is developed, clearly outlining the duties performed, qualifications needed /desired, who will supervise and train the volunteer, and the time job requires.

Each volunteer is interviewed, prior to being assigned to a position, to match his/her time and talent with the appropriate job. The Program Coordinator of the Volunteer Services will, with input from the Department/Division, develop a schedule for the volunteer carefully matching the “right” person for the “right" job.

We want to thank you for considering on becoming a Unified Government Volunteer. As you contribute your time and skills, we hope you will also recognize the benefits that you receive by volunteering.

Volunteers will:

  • Gain valuable experience and knowledge
  • Develop reference base
  • Acquire new skills
  • Explore new careers
  • Associate with other people
  • Receive fellowship, reward, and recognition
  • Make a difference!!


The Unified Government also benefits from the contribution of the time and skills provided by professional volunteers.

Volunteers assist the Unified Government by:

  • Complementing paid staff and enhance services
  • Providing resources and expertise
  • Accomplishing more with less
  • Providing departments an opportunity to test new ideas and initiate new services
