ServiceWorks!

Since its inception in 2001, the ServiceWorks! program has recruited and placed qualified volunteers throughout North Texas municipal departments, saving local governments and their citizens millions of dollars.  ServiceWorks! also provides volunteer recruitment services, training for municipal employees and support to volunteer coordinators in various departments, along with several other membership benefits.

By volunteering through ServiceWorks!, everyday citizens are able to help their cities function at a high level while also learning more about the true work of local officials while developing their own professional skills. Volunteers help local governments save critical finances and maintain fundamental services that keep communities thriving and essential services continue operating.
