Become a Volunteer
Volunteers are an essential component of the departments and programs throughout the City of Georgetown. The departments listed below are looking for interested citizens to join the team, so get ready for some exciting projects! All you have to do is find the best fit for your time and talents!
Thank you for your consideration in volunteering with the City of Georgetown!
The Volunteer Worker program greatly enhances the level of care given to the pets during their stay in the shelter, but more importantly, it affects the quality of life of the animals that found their way here. You will make a positive difference in the lives of some cats and dogs in your work here. Some people, even the fiercest animal lover, will hesitate to volunteer here, concerned that they will become attached to all the animals, but we have a variety of different jobs available, including some that don’t come into contact with the pets. The three major categories of volunteer work are adoption outreach, one on one care of the animals, and fundraising. For additional information call Shawn Gunnin, Animal Services marketing coordinator, (512)930-3592 or through email Shawn.Gunnin@georgetown.org.
Georgetown Public Library
Volunteering at the Georgetown Public Library is a rewarding experience that puts you in the heart of the city. Our volunteers assist in daily operations, special events, and behind the scenes processing. There are tasks for introverts, extroverts, and almost all opportunities come with the chance to interact with and among a very diverse group of people. To find out more, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Loretta Thomas at LibraryVolunteers@georgetown.org or 512-819-3131
Parks & Recreation
Volunteering in the City of Georgetown’s parks is a great way for residents to give back to their communities. Share your time, skills, and talents! Individuals and groups can help on a one-day project or special event or assist on an ongoing basis. Examples of ongoing volunteer opportunities include garden bed weeding or Little Free Library helper. For additional information call Community Engagement Coordinator, Courtney Butler (512) 930-8468 or Courtney.Butler@georgetown.org.
The Georgetown Police Services volunteer program is a vital part of the department.

Other volunteering opportunities include helping the Records Division with administrative functions.
