As a volunteer with the City of Murphy, you will have an opportunity to put your knowledge, talent, and energy toward improving the quality of life in your community. The Volunteer Program provides a broad source of expertise, talent, and manpower for city programs as well as an avenue for you to participate in your local government. You will also benefit by gaining a greater understanding and appreciation for how your city operates and be instrumental in strengthening our community's bond.
Volunteers must be age 16 or older. Consideration is given to those under the age of 16 who are volunteering for special events and/or those working with adults in a volunteer capacity.
This is a flexible program and you can give the time you feel is right. The city provides a variety of opportunities ranging from a couple of hours to long-term assignments in many city departments and through special projects and events.
The Volunteer Program is dedicated to citizen involvement and we are always looking for new ideas, so if you have an interest or special talent to share we want to talk to you! There are other volunteer opportunities within the Police and Fire Departments that are specifically designed to support emergency services and preparedness.
Background checks are required prior to placement in any of the City of Murphy volunteer programs.
Murphy values being a safe, vibrant, family-oriented, distinctive City that fosters a strong sense of community
