Benefits of volunteering

We all know that volunteering makes a difference in our community. But it also makes a difference for the volunteer. When you volunteer, you:

  • Connect to a diverse range of people and make new friends
  • Improve your own physical and mental health
  • Boost your career options by developing new skills and meeting potential contacts
  • Explore new interests and increase your sense of achievement

How it works

Hennepin County sponsors volunteer events focused on affordable housing, academic success, seniors and environmental stewardship. These events are open to all employees and retirees.

Participation in county-sponsored volunteer activities is on an employee's own time (e.g., lunch, breaks, vacation, PTO, and/or balancing hours) and requires the approval of your supervisor.
