Volunteering with Ypsilanti

Boards & Commissions


Not only are Ypsilanti's boards and commissions volunteer-based, Ypsilanti is home to many fantastic agencies that occasionally need volunteer assistance. Listing on this website does not constitute an endorsement by the City - except, of course, for opportunities with the City.
Contact the Clerk's Office for more information about any of these volunteer positions. View more information about all local boards and commissions.

Volunteering in the Parks


The City of Ypsilanti, in partnership with citizen volunteers on the City’s Parks and Recreation Commission, have developed the Adopt-A-Park program to encourage neighbors, community groups, local businesses, and service clubs to dig in to help keep our community’s Parks and Recreation system vibrant. From larger community-wide parks that host major events, to neighborhood pocket parks and tot lots, this public green space in our community is a major asset of our City and used by a diversity of residents.
