Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are vital to the success of our City and our community.  Ongoing opportunities with the City of Sutherlin can provide Sutherlin citizens from all walks of life and abilities to become active and involved in City government.

We believe that:

  • Our community is strengthened by individuals who are committed and want to give back to their community.
  • Volunteering improves citizens’ accessibility to government and educates them in the protocol and transparency.
  • Service is an effective strategy for seeing how government agencies operate and solve problems.
  • Opportunities for all volunteers to have sense of  community where everyone is valued and welcomed.
  • Volunteers make our community stronger, increases government effectiveness and creates benefits for citizens, including being more informed, engaged, and feeling valued and appreciated.
