Volunteer Opportunities on City Web Calendar

In case you haven’t visited it lately, you might want to go to Redwood City’s online calendar of events at www.redwoodcity.org/calendar – and in particular I encourage you to take a look at the updated “Volunteering” feature.

On the left side of the page, click on the “Show: All Categories” menu button, then select “Show: Volunteering” from the pull down menu. That filters the calendar to show only volunteer opportunities.

Right now you’ll see mostly the City’s own volunteer opportunities, from Library help to Parks cleanup, from coaching sports to Project READ, and more. Later it’ll have opportunities from non-profits and other agencies. You’ll also note that many of the listed volunteer opportunities are not date-specific, but are open-ended meaning that you can choose your project, and join in when you want, at the time and date of your choosing – just by contacting the person listed in the post.

Finally, if you are part of a non-profit or other group in Redwood City, I encourage you to submit your volunteer opportunities (and of course any other events or activities) to the calendar! If you don’t have any date-specific volunteer opportunities coming up, but seek volunteers in a more general open-ended way, I am happy to put a generic “volunteers needed” calendar item in for your group each month, for at least the rest of the year. That way, when someone goes to the calendar and sorts by volunteer opportunities, they’ll see that you are seeking volunteers in general – no matter when they access it, and even if it’s not related to a specific, dated event. So please take a look at www.redwoodcity.org/calendar, find a great volunteer opportunity, and/or post your own opportunities.
