The City of Cupertino relies on volunteers to help provide services and programs that the City could not otherwise afford to offer its citizens. The City is committed to maintaining a close relationship between the community volunteers and the City government. Our volunteer program provides a broad source of expertise, talent, and people power for city programs as well as an avenue for citizens to participate in their local government. Our volunteers benefit by gaining a greater understanding and appreciation for their local government while strengthening their community and using their skills. We need your help.
For more information about volunteer opportunities, get in touch with us. You may stop by City Hall during regular business hours, give us a call at 408.777.3120, or send us an e-mail.
