Volunteer Opportunities in Chandler
What would Chandler look like if tens of thousands of volunteers contributed hundreds of thousands of hours to serve our city together? Think how could we address problems, alleviate suffering, and transform our community!
Volunteer programs like For Our City–Chandler have the purpose of helping coordinate service needs of the City of Chandler and non-profit organizations with the service resources of faith-based communities, employers, business groups, and others in the Chandler area.

2012 City of Chandler Centennial Volunteer Challenge
100 Hours of Community Service
In honor of the Chandler Centennial, the City of Chandler partnered with For Our City and the Chandler Non-Profit Coalition (CNPC) to honor the generous contributions of Chandler volunteers by holding a Centennial Volunteer Challenge. The results of this challenge far exceeded expectations, as over 140,000 hours by more than 2,000 volunteers were logged! Of those 2,000, 463 individuals volunteered 100 hours of service or more during the January – October 2012 challenge time frame.
A BIG thank you to all the volunteers and award recipients with the most hours who were recognized on Thursday, December 6, 2012!
