Youth Volunteer Applications

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Ages 15.5 to 18

Minors must be at least 15.5 years old to apply for the volunteer and intern opportunities. Applications for internships and volunteer opportunities are reviewed on an as-needed basis by the various City departments. Submitting an application is not a guarantee of placement. Applications for volunteer opportunities and internships will be kept on file for six months. If you have not been placed in a volunteer position or internship within six months, your application will be purged from the system. Please be aware, submitting multiple applications does not increase your chance for placement. Multiple application submissions within a six month period will be deleted from the system.

    Many City departments use volunteers and interns, depending on the time of year, project and priorities, and overall need. If you are interested in a department that utilizes a department-specific application, click on your preferred choice below and complete the application.

    If you do not see the department you wish to volunteer for listed separately above, please complete the General Application below and indicate your preference as part of the application.

    Additionally, pursuant to the California Public Resources Code 5164 (PRC5164), the City of Chula Vista cannot hire or permit a person to volunteer, to perform services at a City-operated park, playground, or recreational center used for recreational purposes, in a position having supervisory or disciplinary authority over any minor, if that person has been convicted of certain crimes. In addition to the background check, individuals interested in volunteering or interning in positions covered by PRC5164 must complete a criminal questionnaire prior to performing any service for the City of Chula Vista.
