Check for interested opportunities on line(s) below. Unless specified, we may call/email to inform you about other opportunities as they arise, including educational, neighborhood betterment projects, nature cleanups, etc.
Due to current circumstances with covid-19, our volunteer opportunities are limited. We feel strongly about protecting the health + safety of our volunteers and staff.
Please check back for new volunteer opportunities in spring 2021.
Litter Cleanup - Great American Cleanup®
Clean Up Akron is back this spring. From April through June, KAB is offering cleanup supplies for those who wish to help cleanup their neighborhoods on their own time – while following important safety guidelines.
We will provide trash bags, gloves, hand sanitizer and litter grabbers (2 maximum) to groups of 10 or less who wish to help their community by picking up litter.
Please wear PPE, practice social distancing and only participate in groups with others that are already in your inner circle.
Gardening in the KAB flowerbeds
KAB needs assistance in our flower beds this summer! Due to budget cuts from COVID-19, we don’t have all the needed staff to beautify Akron.
We will provide the supplies – and you can join us on a mutually agreed upon date with our Flowerscape Director, Leah!
You will need to wear PPE, practice social distancing and only participate in groups with others that are already in your inner circle.
People can email their name, contact info, date and time to Leah at [email protected].
Beautification Watch Award Canvasser
*We currently have all routes full, but you can sign up to be on our cancellation list.*
BWA volunteers drive one of our pre-determined routes on their own time throughout the month of July and nominate homes + businesses for our Beautification Watch Award.
There are 45 routes that cover the entire City of Akron. Each route takes 2-4 hours to complete. Routes are only to be completed in the month of July and have to be turned in to KAB by Monday, August 3, 2020.
Beautification Watch Awards are our way of saying “thank you” to the homes and businesses that take pride in taking care of their property in the City of Akron.
If you would like to participate as a Beautification Watch Award Canvasser, click here to sign up.
We suggest participating in teams or groups to ensure everyone’s safety, as you will need to write down nominated addresses as you drive by them.
