Volunteer Opportunities

Why Volunteer?

The City of Inverness offers many opportunities to volunteer. People of all ages can get involved in their communities. Volunteering with the City of Inverness gives everybody the chance to be involved in local events such as our Annual Cooter Fest, Patriotic evening and other holiday themed events. We also have opportunities to volunteer at the historic Valerie Theatre. These opportunities also extend to students needing community service hours. Volunteers need to be community driven with a passion for giving back to the community, they also need to be able to work in a fast-paced environment and have a positive attitude.
