Volunteerism is the core of Renton’s community. Our volunteers play a vital role in our community, and ask for nothing in return. Local volunteers have put in thousands of hours, and their contributions are invaluable. Volunteers in Renton have made a personal commitment to share their perspective, time, and energy to make our community a better place. Locally, volunteers in Renton are involved in everything from our boards and commissions to beautification projects in our parks to working with our youth. They assist with victim services, emergency preparedness, and help with program events and festivals. Volunteers give counsel, organize, clean, coach, build, teach, inspire and do much more, giving of themselves for a cause. The success of many local groups and organizations is thanks to the work of volunteers. They have worked hard at events, helped employees provide services to our community and shared their viewpoint and expertise with elected officials. Volunteering is fun, interesting and a great opportunity to meet lots of wonderful people with similar interests. There are opportunities for high school students to fulfill graduation requirements; retired volunteers to share their skills, and each of us can be engaged, enhance our life experiences, meet new people and participate through Renton volunteer opportunities.
