Volunteer Program

The Sonoma County Volunteer program helps connect members of the public who are interested in volunteering to aid County departments in providing services to the community. Volunteers are recognized at an annual event for their contributions to the County's departments and programs.

Volunteering is one of the greatest forms of civic engagement, and in Sonoma County volunteers enhance and extend the County of Sonoma's ability to provide services to the community. Established in 1984, the County of Sonoma Volunteer Program places hundreds of people each year throughout County departments. Countless volunteers invest energy, skills and talent to make Sonoma County a better place to live.

Through training, relationship development, and connecting people with opportunities to serve the community, the Volunteer program thrives because of our community's great volunteer spirit.
