Get Involved! Serve on a Melrose Board or Commission

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is important as it offers essential help to worthwhile causes, people in need, and the wider community. In Melrose, as in other municipalities, all of our Boards and Commissions rely on volunteers to help them thrive and make a positive impact on our community. Volunteering can provide a healthy boost to your self-confidence, self-esteem, and life satisfaction. You are doing good for others and the community, which provides a natural sense of accomplishment. Your role as a volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity.

Volunteer Opportunities with the City of Melrose

The Mayor's Office, in partnership with the Clerk of Committees and City Clerk's Office, maintains a list of Melrose Board and Commission Volunteer Opportunities. If you are interested in being considered for a City Board or Commission, please review the entire list of Boards and Commissions and apply by visiting the Melrose Boards and Committee's Landing Page and selecting "Apply" in the upper right-hand corner.
