The City of Kettering Volunteer program strives to provide volunteers with a positive experience that will promote creativity, expand knowledge, and utilize skills and talents.
Current volunteer opportunities:
Mail Couriers are needed to help deliver mail to City of Kettering departments. Couriers drive a city vehicle during their shift. Fingerprinting is required. There are openings for weekly scheduled and on-call couriers.
Make A Difference Day volunteers are needed to help with our indoor and outdoor activities. Make A Difference Day is on October 26 from 9 a.m. – noon. For the indoor project we will be creating holiday place mats for area nursing homes and holiday greeting cards for our active duty military at Christ Church United Methodist. The outdoor project will meet at Irelan Park for our neighborhood cleanup.

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.
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!
