Dublin Youth Service Days On select Friday mornings this summer, the City of Dublin will host various youth service projects designed for ages 11-14. Participating youth can expect to give back to the community in meaningful ways and learn the impact of their service all while having fun and building valuable skills! Project details and registration information will be announced this spring. Keep an eye out for updates on our website and social media. Citizen U Jumpstart The City of Dublin is proud to offer a citizen engagement program designed for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. This is an excellent opportunity for Dublin teens to learn directly from City staff about their unique pathways to service, explore potential career choices, and get a behind-the-scenes view of the daily operations of your city. Applications will open on May 1. Kids In Dublin Service The City of Dublin values the skills of our youngest citizens. Youth from kindergarten through 5th grade and an accompanying adult are invited to volunteer at special projects designed just for kids. With 4-5 service projects per year, kids will enjoy learning about the importance of service while making a meaningful impact in their community.

Keep Dublin Green Kits Park clean-up kits are available for groups looking to give back and spend some time in nature. The kits include trash and recycle bags, gloves, safety vests, and even a scavenger hunt for kids. To reserve a kit, please let us know. The Giving Garden Spend at least once a week tending to, watering and harvesting the Giving Garden, a vegetable and herb garden at the Historic Coffman Homestead. The garden is included in historic tours of the property – while all produce is donated to the Dublin Food Pantry. You don’t need a formal volunteer program to do the right thing. Remember to reach out to those around you, offer a random act of kindness when you can, and get to know your neighbors, support your Dublin community with a spirit of service and giving! Go to to learn more about these volunteer opportunities and to learn how you, your family, friends or corporate team can reach out and make a difference.
