Outreach & Engagement

On average 3,000 volunteers contribute over 40,000 hours of service in Dublin. This is equivalent to the work of 20 employees. And this doesn’t begin to measure the enormous value of what volunteers give. For everything you do, from the visible impact at events, to those working behind the scenes, the City of Dublin says THANK YOU!

Jump Start

Based on the popular Citizen U, an academy for adult residents to learn about the day-to-day operations of the city, the City of Dublin is proud to launch an all-new, teen-oriented program.

For one week this summer, the City plans to trial “Citizen U Jumpstart” for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. Students will get to go behind the scenes at the City to learn about different aspects of the City of Dublin’s operations, hear from staff members about their unique pathways to service and be introduced to potential career choices.
