Be a Volunteer

Volunteers promote and support community services, programs and events. This page allows the Village to connect volunteers to opportunities in Niles and assist programs and events that serve the Niles community.

Volunteerism is one of a communities greatest assets. Each hour you donate in Niles not only strengthens our entire community, but also helps realize our shared vision that

"It's possible here"


Opportunities are increasing daily and include opportunities to serve on Boards or Commissions, opportunities to gain community service hours, and opportunities to help with special events and programs.

Currently Needed: Snow Angels December - March 2022

Niles Snow Angels Volunteer Program

In Niles, neighbors help neighbors.  This winter the Niles Senior Center is looking for individuals and families to assist other residents that need assistance when it snows.  Volunteers will be matched with one resident who does not have the ability to shovel and clear the snow around their house.  These residents are older in age, have a disability or a medical condition with no other adults in the area.
