Volunteers are an essential resource for the City of Southlake and contribute thousands of service hours each year. Volunteers serve in many capacities around the City, including at the Library, in the Senior Center, and with Public Safety. In addition, volunteers serve on Boards and Commissions.
Volunteer Southlake aims to provide meaningful, engaging, and rewarding volunteer experiences to youth and adult volunteers. Volunteering is an investment in the community and provides additional benefits to volunteers, such as building relationships with others, developing new skill sets, and enriching the mind and body.
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.
Volunteer at Champions Club or at the Senior Activity Center at Legends Hall. Help monitor the indoor playground, sanitize equipment, and help with special events and other activities! Volunteers play a crucial role in the success of The Marq Southlake.
Camp Mania volunteers assist with daily activities while interacting and monitoring the kids attending camp. This is an excellent opportunity for enthusiastic volunteers who enjoy working with kids. There are several week-long and Day Break Camp Mania sessions held throughout the year.
