Community Service & Programs


The City of El Cerrito Recreation Department offers volunteer opportunities for teens (grades 8-12). We will keep a log of the hours each teen works and provide letters of recommendation or completion upon request. Teens will have an opportunity to develop new skills, perform a vital service to the community, and meet new people. 

There are opportunities throughout the calendar year for teens to volunteer. We will update the application form to reflect what is (at that time) available.
