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.
Please see below our two volunteer opportunities and how to get involved.
1. Beautification Watch Award Canvasser
BWA volunteers drive one of our pre-determined routes on their own time throughout the month of July and nominate homes and 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 Thursday, August 5, 2021.
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.
2. Litter Cleanup - Great American Cleanup®
At KAB, we typically participate in Great American Cleanup (GAC) during our annual Clean Up Akron Month (CUAM) every April.
Now through October, KAB is offering cleanup supplies for those who wish to help cleanup their street, neighborhood, park on their own time.
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.
