Consider sharing your most precious gift with your neighbors--your time. The
City of Mesa offers many opportunities for citizens to help make our community
an even better place to live. Volunteers are needed in our art center,
libraries, museums, neighborhoods, parks, police, fire department, courts and
many other areas. Whatever you can spare--an hour a week or a few hours a day--we need your help.
The City of Mesa provides a quality work environment where volunteers are
valued and respected for the role they play in contributing their time and

maximum commitment is 40 hours per week.
The volunteer who has completed and signed a Volunteer Application and has a

Compensation program as per City Resolution No. 6491. If injured on the job, the
basis for computing compensation is outlined under A.R.S. 23-901.06. The
department also may wish to utilize a Volunteer Agreement.
Depending on the nature of the assignment (i.e. handling money, security
issues), the department will determine the need to complete a background check.
This process may include fingerprinting.
