Make a difference by volunteering! The City of Denton and our partners provide a variety of volunteer opportunities for you to give back to the community and serve neighbors in need.

Volunteer Opportunity: Stream Clean
Volunteers are organized by the City and Keep Denton Beautiful. This waterway cleanup event targets specific waterways in and around Denton. When litter makes its way into storm drains and drainage ditches, it ends up in our lakes, streams, and rivers. To volunteer for the next Stream Clean event, fill out the volunteer form accessible on this page.

Volunteers for the Library
Teen and adult volunteers help build community by promoting lifelong learning, encouraging human connections, and sharing resources. Volunteers must attend an orientation session and pass a background check. NOTE: Orientations are not for completing court-ordered community service. Register for and attend an orientation session.

Volunteer Opportunity: Citizen Police Volunteer Program
Volunteers are trained to provide support in field and support operations, for traffic surveys, and at special events. To become a volunteer, contact Officer Shane Kizer at (940) 349-7241 or Shane.Kizer@cityofdenton.com.

Parks and Recreation Volunteer Coaches
Volunteer coaches are needed for all youth leagues. To learn more, email Chris.Escota@cityofdenton.com.

NOTE: Court-Ordered Community Service
To ask about fulfilling hours for court-mandated community service, contact the Denton Public Library at (940) 349-8752 and the Parks and Recreation Department at (940) 349-7275.
