Local groups may “adopt” a Lakewood street and perform occasional litter cleanups to beautify Lakewood.
Lakewood has all kinds of volunteer positions and projects. All of these are great community service opportunities.
The City offers rewarding internships in support of key projects, community events, and important governmental work.
Internships are about your learning and advancing your professional goals. City of Lakewood interns develop career direction, gain practical knowledge, and earn real opportunities to make a positive difference in Lakewood.
