Volunteers

Pictures of 3 volunteerWashington County fosters a sense of volunteerism by providing many opportunities for people to get involved through service and action that will preserve and improve the quality of life within our communities.      

Through volunteering, individuals can enrich their own lives and the lives of their fellow community members by sharing the valuable and precious resources of time and talent.  Volunteers can make a commitment to "give back" through service with a variety of County departments, through participation on an appointed board, committee, or commission.  Serving as a Washington County volunteer is a great way to participate in meaningful work that will impact your community while allowing you the opportunity to learn more about how your local government works!

At the government level, many advisory opportunities exist to serve on the County's appointed boards, committees and commissions.

Many additional volunteering opportunities exist in with our departments and community programs.  For a list of these opportunities, view the following links:
