Volunteering

Your Caring Goes A Long Way

Volunteers make our community a vibrant and exciting place to live.  Without the dedication of community members just like you, the Cedarbrae Community League Association wouldn’t be able to bring you and your family great programs and activities to enjoy. 

Are you available to volunteer for a one-time event or would you like to be part of an ongoing volunteering opportunity?  Would you prefer to volunteer outside or maybe organize an indoor sport?  No matter what your passion is, your community needs you.

Take a look at our current volunteer opportunities below and check back often for new opportunities as they become available.
