Kick off National Volunteer Month with the City of Little Rock and its various partners. 

We have multiple opportunities for you, your family, your friends or your organization to serve.

Impact the Rock

A Day of Unity and Service


Kick off National Volunteer Week with us at the Animal Village, a park, or a street on April 16th.  We have three different ways you can participate: join one of our projects, create your own project and invite your friends or, if you are an adopter, work in your adopted area that day.

If you can't make the 16th, you can volunteer anytime between April 15th until the end of April 24th. 

Last year we requested 150 volunteers for our city sponsored projects and 180 of you showed up and showed out.

Let's do it again!
