Get Involved ... Serve on a committee, board, commission, event and more
The City of West Jordan has a variety of opportunities where volunteers can use their talents and time
on behalf of our community. We have committees, events, boards and commissions in need of
volunteers as well as ongoing projects suitable for youth groups and Eagle Scouts. The City's
volunteer needs fall under two categories: civic volunteers and community/group volunteers.
Note: Because of liability issues, the city does not provide court-ordered service opportunities.
Civic volunteers are formal City volunteers under the scope of the City, a City employee, or elected
official (these volunteers have completed a volunteer application and been notified of acceptance by
the City). These parties represent the City and are covered by the City's Workman’s Comp if injured
while performing official volunteer service within the course and scope of their defined duties.
Examples include West Jordan Fire Department, City Committees, West Jordan Police Department,
Volunteers can serve on various West Jordan Committees, including the Arts Council, Budget Committee, Western Stampede Committee, Healthy West Jordan Committee and more. More Information
