Volunteers

Are you looking for a way to build community, or a way to get involved in what the City of Greenville is doing? What better way than to volunteer for one of our events! 

The City of Greenville Public Information and Events department seeks volunteers who are dedicated to making Greenville, SC, a better place to live. We are looking for enthusiastic, positive, hard-working people to help us produce events that align directly with our mission and values. We love working with local non-profits, corporate businesses, schools, churches, individuals and diverse interest groups. We thrive because our volunteers show up and make a difference. The City of Greenville Special Events Department has many opportunities to offer. We do large-scale and small-scale events, and everything in-between.
