City of Blaine Volunteer Program

The City of Blaine offers many opportunities for citizens to become involved and have a voice in the community.  In addition to service on a commission, board, or committee, a citizen can help the community by providing specialized assistance to City departments and divisions.

Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the City, meet new people, and gain valuable experience while enriching your life and enhancing the community you live in. Your generosity, by gifting your time and community spirit through volunteering, helps make Blaine a better place to live.

Adults

College Student Interns

Students
