There are a variety of ways you can volunteer with Civic Works to make a difference in Baltimore. When it comes to donating your time, we have many opportunities to get involved. Spend time working on a farm. Beautify a vacant lot. Volunteer with a group of colleagues, with your school or religious organization, with your family, or on your own… we welcome the chance to facilitate volunteering in our communities.
Civic Works' Annual Ricky Myers Day of Service
Civic Works’ Annual Ricky Myers Day of Service is our largest volunteer day of the year! The event celebrates Civic Works’ mission by engaging hundreds of volunteers to work on service projects in Baltimore and honors the life of Ricky Myers, a staff member who dedicated his life to serving Baltimore’s communities.

Community Lot Team
The Community Lot Team invites volunteers to join them in transforming vacant lots into community gardens. Tasks for volunteers typically include landscaping and gardening work, as well as brush clearing and litter pick-up.
-Open Volunteer Hours are held every Friday from 9am-12pm on vacant lots around Baltimore. Check the events calendar to see each week’s location (posted the Tuesday before the event) or contact email@example.com.
-Groups over 5 interested in scheduling a service day, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out the Group Application below.
-Individuals and groups less than 5, follow the Community Lot Team on Facebook for more events, volunteer opportunities, and updates.
Closed-toe shoes are required, sturdy boots are recommended. Wear clothes you can get dirty and bring a refillable water bottle. Children 14 and older are welcome at our projects – anyone 14-18 must have a waiver signed by a guardian. All work is outdoors, physically intense, usually dirty, and we will be working in inner city neighborhoods with potentially limited access to bathrooms and food.
Ice, snow and rain make it difficult to garden! Contact email@example.com if you are concerned about the weather. Cancellations will be posted on Facebook and group leaders will be contacted directly. In the winter we follow Baltimore City Public School closings.
