Volunteer Day

Dublin Pride Week


Volunteer Day 

Register today for Dublin Pride Volunteer Day!   Volunteer on a project that matches your interest or passion.  All ages are welcome however for safety reasons anyone under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.  The City of Dublin and Zone 7 require a signed waiver from all participants. Please download and sign the waiver and bring it with you to the event. Extra blank waivers will be on hand the day of the event.

Please note that most of the projects are at a different site from our meeting place, so you will need transportation from Emerald Glen Park to your project around 8:45 and back to Emerald Glen Park around 12:00 noon if you wish to join us for lunch and the volunteer fair.

Here are some tips to help make your Volunteer Day experience a success:
  1. Bring a copy of your signed volunteer waiver: http://dublin.ca.gov/documentcenter/view/11967 
  2. Bring a reusable water bottle. Hydration stations will be on site for filling bottles.
  3. Wear close-toed shoes, long pants, and a hat.
  4. Bring your own work gloves, however latex gloves will be available for all volunteers.
  5. Don’t forget sunscreen!
