Volunteer & Get Involved

​No matter your interest, ability, or age or how much time you have to give, there is a way for you to make a difference in Salem. Volunteers provide a powerhouse of skills, time, talent, and energy. They work together with appointed officials, paid staff, and elected representatives on issues that matter. Volunteers make Salem a home.
