Want to do something meaningful in the Longview community? The City of Longview Volunteer Center is just the connection to explore interesting opportunities! You may volunteer inside a City department, participate in annual events, special projects, work independently or you may even create your own unique volunteer project. Achieving more by volunteering together is a way to maximize your efforts. The Volunteer Center can help you decide what level of volunteering is right for you. There is no wrong choice and whatever you decide on just know that you are appreciated and your volunteer time is too!
Level I Volunteers: These interests can include assisting with cleanups, adopting a park, street, median, or flag pole. Unique projects may include things such as special plants for a touch of seasonal color. Level I volunteering does not usually require a background check.
Level II Volunteers: These interests can include assisting inside an office, Longview Public Library, Green Street Recreation Center, Citizens On Patrol, Citizens Emergency Response Team, Partners In Prevention and many more choices. Background checks are required for Level II volunteering.
Background checks may be required for any volunteer opportunity.

Circles of East Texas Volunteer Ally - Throughout the Year
Through a project called Circles™ of East Texas, the City of Longview Partners in Prevention is seeking adult volunteers to help make a powerful difference in the lives of local families. Volunteers in the project are known as “Allies” because they form intentional friendships with a family in poverty and join them in a quest to self-sufficiency.
All City Council Meetings, Living in Longview Segments, Planning and Zoning Meetings, Partners in Prevention Shows and Boards and Commission Meetings are here!
