Some of Provo City's greatest assets are its volunteer minded citizens and its geographic location. The majestic Wasatch Mountain range on the east and the Provo River and trails meandering throughout the city, provides for a variety of opportunities for service projects for citizens of any age or ability.

Service opportunities are available for any size of 
group including:

  • business and corporate groups
  • religious organizations
  • college clubs
  • family activities (children, parents, grandparents, etc.)
  • neighborhood projects
  • Eagle Scout projects
  • or individuals

Most service projects involve: weeding, raking, trash pickup, preparing for and laying sod, planting trees, creating and maintaining tree aprons, painting and trail building.
