The spirit of volunteerism among the residents of Elgin is one of the city’s greatest assets of our community! No matter what your talents, gifts or interests, there are many rewarding ways you can give back to your community through volunteerism.

Whether you are interested in helping at a one-time event, or looking for a regular volunteer job, there are many opportunities available.

Police

Serve your community in time of emergencies as a CERT (Citizen Emergency Response Team) member or by providing a variety of administrative assistance to our staff.

Residents are encouraged to submit an application to serve on one of the city’s many boards and commissions. Applications can be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office and appointments are made by the entire City Council.

Special Events/Arts

The summer season is filled with many special events that need enthusiastic volunteers who love meeting people and having fun! Join us to prepare for the Elgin Valley Fox Trot on May 28.
