Take the Challenge and Volunteer!

Neighbor-to-Neighbor "100,000 Service Hour Challenge" is Mayor Dwight C. Jones' new volunteer initiative designed to promote service and volunteerism in the city of Richmond. As city residents, you can set an example by volunteering in city neighborhoods and encouraging others to join in brightening the lives of fellow Richmonders.

You can help in many ways, such as serving as a resource in city schools tutoring a child in reading, or beautifying the city by helping to maintain one of its many green spaces. You might choose to serve as a friendly visitor to support the elderly or coach an athletic team to lead area youth. Click here to take the first step of the challenge by completing the simple registration form. Your volunteer efforts can help "Build a Better Richmond!"
