CommUNITY Volunteering

Celebrating the Impact of Everyday Difference Makers

One of the unique traits of the City of Rancho Cucamonga is the way members of the community involve themselves through volunteerism. Our volunteers bring passion and special skillsets to the table that enhance our events and programs. Volunteering provides an opportunity for just one person to make an impact on the entire community. Whether delivering hot meals to homebound seniors, coaching a youth sports team, fostering a litter of kittens, or preparing for a natural disaster through CERT training, the City offers diverse opportunities to meet interests of those looking to give back to the community.

Volunteers reap benefits like acquiring new skills, meeting new people, gaining valuable work experience, making professional contacts, building self-confidence, and improving the quality of life in the community. Each one is essential to strengthening existing programs and services, and key to helping the City to develop new ones. We encourage community members to show pride and get involved in civic activities they enjoy through volunteer opportunities.

An impressive 1,500 individuals actively volunteered and contributed over 69,000 hours of services in 2016. Here is a sample of volunteer opportunities we currently offer:
