Make a difference in your community - volunteer!
If we didn't have volunteers, some our most beloved Town programs and events simply wouldn't happen. It's as simple as that.
Parks & Recreation Volunteers:
Help with park and trail beautification, coach a youth team, work in the community garden, help run the July 4th celebration, prep for our Special Needs Dance, or serve on the Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee - Parks & Recreation thrives because of volunteers! If you're interested or know a group that's looking for community service opportunities, fill out the Volunteer Form, email the Parks & Recreation Director or return it to the Clayton Community Center at 715 Amelia Church Road. If you have any questions, call 919-553-1550. If you're a high school student, consider joining our Clayton Youth Council. The Clayton Youth Council performs community service and even gets rewarded with trips and adventures!
Opportunities at Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library include helping with the Summer Reading Program, Story Time, special events, book sales and generally helping keep the library bustling with books! If you're 13-18 years old, we’d love for you to volunteer for our Summer Reading Program where you might read to pre-school and elementary school children, help with special guests and assist with preparing and making fun crafts with the kids. Here’s the teen volunteer application! For all other volunteers, please fill out the Volunteer Form, and email the Library Director, stop by the Town of Clayton Library at 100 S. Church Street, or call 919-359-9366.
The Clayton Center Volunteers:
The excitement of The Clayton Center doesn’t stop with the great shows. Also in the spotlight are our volunteers, The Scene Stealers. They are key players in each performance - greeting patrons, ushering guests and managing the concessions areas. Whether they're passing out programs with an old friend or taking up tickets with someone they’ve just met, the Scene Stealers are an energetic group of individuals dedicated to the arts and to The Clayton Center. Plus, they get to see some of the shows while working! For questions or for more information about volunteering with The Scene Stealers, click here.
Boards & Committees:
The Town of Clayton depends on citizen volunteers to help our staff plan and organize many aspects of the Town. By volunteering your time, experience and skills you can serve your community in many ways! There is a simple application and interview process when positions are available. Visit our Boards & Committees page to learn more about what each one does, when they meet and how to apply!
