Volunteer Opportunities

"Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in." - Author Unknown

Thank you for considering working as a volunteer! The City is excited to offer a variety of volunteer opportunities to support our great East Bethel community. Are you looking for a one day event? How about a long term opportunity? Do you want to work outside? Maybe you have excellent organizational skills? There are many opportunities in East Bethel to put your skills to great use.

Volunteer Commissions

City Commissions are advisory in nature, and offer an ongoing way to be involved in planning, development, and preservation issues. Learn more about our Commissions and consider getting involved in this important role.

City Volunteer Opportunities


A park or trail (or portions thereof) can be adopted by an individual, business, or organization from the City of East Bethel for public service activities, as designated by the City Council, and recommended by the Park Commission.
