Boulder City Seeks Volunteers for City, Local Organizations

CommunityVolunteer_SM_V3

BOULDER CITY – The City of Boulder City was built on a philosophy of helping one another.  From our humble beginnings in the 1930’s on the project to build Hoover Dam to our efforts to help neighbors during COVID-19, volunteers have been the backbone of our community. As we emerge from the pandemic, local agencies are working with the City to strengthen their volunteer pool.

The City is embarking on an effort to recruit volunteers through the City website: www.bcnv.org/volunteer. Advertisements on the government access channel BCTV and social media posts call for people to get engaged. “We’ve taken inventory of volunteer opportunities and placed them on one simple, easy-to-remember page on the City website,” said Taylour Tedder, City Manager for Boulder City.  “Staff also reached out to some of the larger aid organizations to include their opportunities.”

Among the volunteer efforts: 

  • City Hall (various departments/general office assistance)
  • Boulder City Police and Fire Departments
  • Emergency Aid of Boulder City
  • Senior Center of Boulder City
  • Lend a Hand
  • Boulder City Chamber of Commerce
  • Nevada Department of Veteran Services
  • Lakeview Terrace Senior Living

The campaign includes short videos and social media materials created by Carly Poindexter, the City’s Graphic Designer and Web Editor, to draw interest to the website. "Our local government and many organizations in town benefit from the efforts of volunteers. I know from my own experience how rewarding volunteering can be," said Mayor Kiernan McManus. "I believe local organizations will benefit from having a central location to share their opportunities. Whether a resident is looking for something new or to use skills learned over a lifetime, there is likely to be an opportunity to volunteer a few hours a month or a few days a week. We are a better community when we work together."

If your organization has volunteer opportunities and you would like to be added to our webpage, please email llaplante@bcnv.org or cpoindexter@bcnv.org.
