Richmond, CA Service Plan
In March 2012, the City of Richmond began engaging the Richmond community to implement an impact volunteering program in our
city. Impact volunteering seeks to tackle priority challenges through volunteer strategies that target a community’s priority needs, use best
practices, and set clear outcomes for measurable results.
Richmond's most pressing challenges to address are:
• building an infrastructure and the capacity of community based
organizations to utilize volunteers.
• raising awareness and mobilizing our residents to volunteer to address
our community’s biggest challenges.
• engaging parents and volunteers to support children’s educational
and health development.
• supporting neighborhoods to beautify and revitalize their surroundings.
