Volunteering ... It's Your Community. Join the Team!

We welcome your participation in making Sarasota County the best place to live or visit. Volunteering connects you to others, increases self-confidence, improves your outlook, helps you to stay physically healthy, and brings fun and fulfillment to your life. Just ask a volunteer.

Sarasota County Volunteers together with our community partners really did Make a Difference in 2017!  So far this fiscal year that began Oct. 1, 2017,  county volunteers and community partners have contributed 94,536 hours at a value of $2,268,864.00.
