The Town of Hamden believes in providing engaging and rewarding volunteer activities for residents, students, and children who wish to participate in their communities. We have a wide range of opportunities available in our Youth Services and Arts & Culture Departments, with occasional opportunities in other Departments. Take a look at the opportunities below! Hope to volunteer with you soon :)
Note: If you would like to inquire about volunteering in a Department or for a program you don't see here, please email Deputy Chief of Staff, Patrick Donnelly, at email@example.com. Include your interests, full name, current address, and telephone number.
The Hamden Youth Services Bureau provides a Volunteer and Community Service program that places students and community members who wish to volunteer in the Hamden community. We are hoping to seek, create and foster opportunities for all Hamden youth and their families to learn and grow in positive ways by providing a variety of programs and services. In order to do this, we are looking for assistance from all:
- Public Schools- Ages 12 Years and Older
How to Volunteer
If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering that is caring, responsible, reliable, and wants to help the Hamden Community, please have them submit their applications to HYSB Volunteer Coordinator, Patunia Medy, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact her directly at 203-777-2610 ext.1124.
After receiving your application, Ms. Medy will then set up an appointment/interview with you (and a parent/guardian if under 18) to discuss potential placements according to your interests, talents, and available time, as well as what volunteer opportunities are available in the Hamden community.
We are also looking for local businesses/organizations who would be interested in utilizing this service. If you are willing to work with us and offer your facility as a future site where we can place our individuals please do not hesitate to contact me.
The Hamden Department of Arts & Culture could always use an extra (stage) hand! We put on soooooo many amazing events each and every year that even we (that's right, the best) get a little tired! Do you love our events so much that you want to help us out?! Well now, that would be grand!
If you'd like to volunteer with us, and the Arts Commission, please send an email with your Full Name, Address, and Telephone Number to the Arts & Marketing Director, Alisha Martindale, at email@example.com. You will be contacted if opportunities are available and you are selected. The Town reserves the right to refuse volunteers (but we don't want to!)
We know you're thinking about it......C'mon!
