The Town of Gilbert has a number of opportunities for volunteer work. Listed below are current opportunities where you can help out and make things happen. Our volunteer motto is GIVE ("Gilbert Invites Volunteerism Everywhere").

Boards and Commissions

Volunteers who serve on Gilbert’s Boards and Commissions play an important role in developing and sustaining our community. Our volunteers dedicate countless hours every year, lending their time and talents to help make Gilbert a better place to live, work and play. Some board and commission members apply professional or technical skills, while others simply bring a passion for Gilbert and a willingness to work as part of a team. Whatever board or commission they serve on, members are making a difference in their community

Eagle Scout Projects

Prospective Eagle Scouts- We encourage you to visit park sites in the community and see what needs improvement. The town does not have a “standing list” of projects.  An internet search can also yield many project ideas.  When you have decided on a project, submit your ideas to the Town staff listed below that can coordinate your Eagle Scout project.
