Volunteer Programs

Residents and community members can give back by volunteering with The City of Hyattsville! 

Volunteer for a Service Project

The City's Office of Volunteer Services can match you or your group with service projects that make an impact in the community. Volunteers of all ages and abilities are welcome, whether they live in Hyattsville or just want to lend a helping hand.

City staff coordinate meaningful, organized, and safe opportunities for volunteers. They also track service hours and can provide documentation and letters of recommendation as needed. 

Sign up for a one-time event or ongoing service project.

Join a City Committee

City Committees, Advisory Boards, and Task Forces are composed of volunteer residents from across Hyattsville who provide City Council with diverse perspectives and advice on City projects and policies. 

Visit our City Committees page to find the right fit for you.

Volunteers of the Year

Congratulations to Colin Jeffers and Dave Shepard, the 2021 Hyattsville Volunteers of the Year!

Colin is a 13-year Hyattsville resident who takes time each week from his professional life to help with the Tuesday food distributions at Driskell Park and the Thursday meal deliveries to local seniors. In addition, Mr. Jeffers serves as an active Election Judge. He helps ensure the City’s biannual and special elections are handled transparently and fairly.

Dave, a Hyattsville resident for ten years, is also a seasoned food distribution volunteer. Mr. Shepard assists on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and essentially anytime the City puts a call-out for help. In 2020, Dave served on the City’s Census Committee to help make sure our residents were represented correctly and accounted for. During his “free” time, you can catch him serving as the coach of his son’s soccer and basketball teams. 

Thank you Colin and Dave!
