  • Stanislaus County Government Volunteer Program

The Volunteer Program is a great way to connect people with opportunities to serve Stanislaus County Government Departments and form meaningful partnerships. Countless volunteers currently invest their time, energy, skills, and talent to help make County departments run more efficiently. Volunteering is one of the greatest forms of civic engagement and we appreciate the volunteers who donate their time without compensation. County volunteer opportunities range from one-time events to long-term volunteer opportunities such as providing library books to homebound individuals and assisting at the Health Services Agency. The County Volunteer Program encourages citizens and County retirees to volunteer their time and talents.

Administration of the County's Volunteer Program is decentralized; and the departmental volunteer programs vary considerably.  Please click on the list of Department Volunteer Coordinators to find the name of the contact person for the department you are interested in.

All volunteers are required to complete the Volunteer Application Form. Those volunteering for an event can fill out the One-Time Event Application Form. Volunteer Application Forms are available online and are also available on the Second Floor of 1010 10th Street.

  • Department Volunteer Coordinators may accept volunteer applications directly without going through the Chief Executive Office.
  • Completed application forms should be submitted to the appropriate Department Volunteer Coordinator as noted on each Volunteer Opportunity posting on Volunteer Match.
  • Completed applications can be e-mailed, mailed, faxed, or hand delivered to the appropriate Volunteer Coordinator or contact name listed on the volunteer opportunity posting.

The County has installed two public access computers on the Second Floor of 1010 10th Street for volunteers desiring to use the resources contained on our webpage. Computers are available anytime Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Contact: (209) 525-6341.


Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in. ~ Unknown
