Find Ways to Volunteer in Your Community

Giving Back to the Community Is One of Your Greatest Gifts

For more than a decade, For The City has helped thousands of people just like you find volunteer opportunities that make a lasting impact in their community. We provide resources that enable you to use your unique gifts and passion for helping others in the most meaningful way possible.

Education on a Variety of Volunteer Topics 

Over the last 10 years, we’ve had the privilege of meeting many volunteers across the country. In that time, we’ve come to realize volunteers don’t get the education and support they need. Many people say, “I want to volunteer near me, but I don’t know what will have the greatest impact.”

For The City is filling the gap with free resources and courses that provide education on anti-human trafficking, foster care, social justice topics and much more. 

Get a For The City Guidebook for Your Area

One of the most useful resources we offer volunteers is in-depth guidebooks. For The City Guides go into detail on a city’s history, cultural trends, legislation and social injustices that exist today. Our hope is that this type of education will make volunteers aware of the current issues their city faces and how they can make positive change through service.
