Welcome to Volunteer Southlake

Volunteers are an important resource for the City of Southlake. Our volunteers contribute thousands of hours of service each year. Volunteers help the City of Southlake by serving on Boards, Commissions and Committees. In addition, volunteers are essential to various City departments including the Southlake Public Library and Senior Center.

Volunteer Southlake seeks to provide a meaningful, engaging and rewarding volunteer experience.

Our goal is to make your volunteer experience with us as rewarding as possible. We have many year-round and seasonal opportunities from which you can choose.

Due to an increase in demand at certain programming sites, volunteers may need to review later dates in the calendar to schedule times to volunteer.  Thank you for your patience!
