Volunteer Opportunities

Side Kicks

Whatever your interests and abilities, you can put your time, skills, and experience to good use. Our Greenfield Sidekicks program gives Greenfield Community Members a way to meet new people, earn volunteer hours, and strengthen our community through volunteerism.


Research demonstrates that volunteering leads to better health and volunteers are the most likely to receive physical and mental health benefits from their volunteer activities.

  • Learn and do things that you might not normally get the chance to experience.
  • Volunteers can improve their own lives by gaining skills, experience, and contacts.
  • Improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering.

Whatever your passion, however you get involved, volunteering offers a way to have a real and lasting impact on the world.
