The City of Kettering Volunteer program strives to provide volunteers with a positive experience that will promote creativity, expansion of knowledge, and utilization and sharing of their skills and talents.
Current volunteer opportunities:
Drivers are needed for our senior transportation program. This position requires one morning or afternoon a week. Must have a valid Ohio driver’s license. A background check with fingerprinting will be conducted.
Senior Transportation Schedulers are needed at the Lathrem Senior Center from 8 a.m. – noon on various weekdays. Volunteers need to have a pleasant phone voice and be somewhat familiar with computers.
Receptionists are needed to answer phones and greet visitors in various offices throughout the city. These volunteers are on an on-call basis.
Special Event volunteers are needed throughout the year to assist our Parks, Recreation & Cultural Arts Dept. with family activities. These events take place in the evening or during the weekend. These are excellent opportunities for students and working folks to give back to our community!
Tax Season is upon us yet again, and every year we utilize several volunteers to make the coming months a success. Volunteers assist in opening mail and greeting citizens as they come to receive assistance with their taxes.
Contact the Volunteer Office at 296-2433 for additional information on these opportunities.
If you don’t see an opportunity that interests you, you may still complete a volunteer application. Just specify your interests and we will contact you when an opportunity is available.
Eligibility requirements for volunteering:
Volunteers need to be at least 14 years of age. We sometimes allow younger youth groups to assist with special projects providing an adult accompanies the group. Our volunteers include those with professional and technical work experience and even people who don’t live in Kettering. Volunteers 18 years of age and older will be subject to a background check.
