In order to help provide superior customer service, Cleveland Hopkins Internation Airport implemented an Airport Ambassador Volunteer Program. The program allows volunteers — many of whom have had successful careers in a variety of fields — to provide information and assistance to travelers and their families, friends and business associates as they visit CLE. This program received the 2007 Outstanding Station Award from RSVP, which provides volunteer opportunities throughout Greater Cleveland.
Greater Cleveland Volunteers hosts the Cleveland chapter of two national programs for adults ages 55+. The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program has been serving the Cleveland community since 1972 and each year supports over 2800 older adults who give time and talent to help others. A special part of this program is the RSVP Players Volunteer Theatrical Group. Research proves that older adults that volunteer live healthier, more rewarding lives. Greater Cleveland Volunteers is also the local host for the Cleveland chapter of the national Experience Corps program which engages adults age 55 and older in service to inner city schools.
Cleveland’s Neighborhood Watch Program provides the opportunity for neighborhoods to work with police to design crime prevention programs which meet their own particular needs and reduce crime. Networks of neighbors are trained by crime prevention officers to protect themselves and their property, as they learn to serve effectively as additional eyes and ears for law enforcement agencies in their communities
Courtwatch: Helping Victims and the Justice System
216.664.3294 or 216.664.3290 - Weekdays 8 am to 5 pm - 601 Lakeside Ave., Room 11
Courtwatch representatives are the “watchdogs" of the community because they help victims and neighbors monitor court cases while establishing a visible presence during trials. Courtwatch gives Clevelanders the opportunity to learn how the criminal justice system works, who the judges are, and what sentences are imposed.
Courtwatch recruits and trains community volunteers to attend hearings and trials. These volunteers report basic information and give impressions of the performances of judges and prosecutors.
Courtwatchers show victims that they have community support. By making a statement to criminals that crime will not be tolerated they also support police, prosecutors, and judges who apprehend and punish those that harm others.
Cleveland Animal Control Services Volunteer Opportunities
Friends of the Cleveland Kennel are looking for people willing to volunteer with dogs and cats. Volunteers who work at the Division of Animal Control Services clean cages, and feed, bathe, and walk dogs. Opportunities are also available for those who can foster dogs and cats. Foster homes offer a viable, temporary alternative for animals who have no place to go. In addition, the group seeks donations of pet supplies including food, toys, collars and leashes, blankets and beds.
