The City of Dallas Volunteer Program is an innovative partnership between VolunteerNow and the City of Dallas. VolunteerNow serves the region by providing volunteer recruitment services, training for municipal employees and support to volunteer coordinators in various departments. Since the initial partnership in 2001, the program has recruited and placed qualified volunteers throughout the city, saving the municipality and their citizens millions of dollars on an annual basis. When volunteering through the City of Dallas Volunteer Program, citizens learn about the work of local officials and each volunteer benefits by developing and furthering professional skills. Volunteers allow municipalities to continue functioning at high levels in the face of deep budget cuts and thereby, ensure critical services are not interrupted.
