How Can I Participate?
The Recreation and Community Services Department will work with you to place you in a volunteer assignment that will be of interest to you and provide a positive experience.

All volunteers must fill out an application and go through a general orientation.  The orientation includes distribution of the volunteer handbook as well as information on policies, procedures and other relevant information.  Some positions require a fingerprint and background check.  Those who use their automobile or a City of Selma vehicle in their volunteer work must provide proof of current auto insurance, and participate in a city vehicle in-service. 

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the City Selma contact the Recreation and Community Services Department for specific volunteer descriptions, applications and other assignments available.
