Community Volunteer Opportunities

The City of Celina has a variety of volunteer opportunities for individuals age 16 years or older. Volunteering offers a great way to get connected and give back to the community. Our volunteers are a valuable and much-appreciated resource for our fast-growing City and the myriad activities in the community. It only takes a few minutes to sign up: simply complete the online form to be added to our volunteer database. We will share volunteer opportunities with you as they arise. 


The City hosts a range of events from day to night, big to small, sporty to spooky. These events would not be possible without the help of our amazing volunteers. Learn more about the different events throughout the year by visiting www.lifeincelinatx.com/events.

Ongoing Opportunities

Looking for ways to volunteer outside of City events? The Celina Police Department and Celina Public Library have periodic volunteer opportunities. Visit their web pages or contact them directly for more information.

Citizens Academies

We currently offer three academy opportunities for residents and business owners to learn more about the City of Celina and its Departments at an operational level. These programs provide an excellent learning experience and opportunity for engagement, hopefully setting the stage for future involvement in the community.

Community Organizations

Several organizations around Celina offer volunteer opportunities in different cause areas. Explore the links below to learn more.

2020 Volunteer of the Year Award

Join us as we congratulate our 2020 Volunteers of the Year: Michelle Baggett and Philip Ferguson. Thank you and congratulations to these two outstanding individuals! We sincerely appreciate all that you do.

Michelle Baggett

Michelle Baggett Volunteer of the Year

Michelle is the creator of Friday Night Market. It was a dream in Celina for the last decade but Michelle, with her babies in toe, had the vision and dedication to make the market a reality in Celina. This event has provided an excellent opportunity to showcase local businesses, vendors, and performers. It has and will continue, to reaffirm and grow the Square as a cultural hub for our community. Michelle has gone above and beyond in her service to the city. She has served 7 years on the Main Street Board and will continue to be a strong voice on the new Downtown Commission Board. 

Philip Ferguson

Philip Ferguson Volunteer of the Year

Philip has served as a volunteer for 7 years, on both the Community Development Committee and Main Street Board. Philip is a hard worker and is very creative. He took the Movie Night to another dimension, not the Twilight Zone, but as close as he could get. Philip's creativity gave Halloween a whole new flair, resulting in Beware of the Square. We are excited to collaborate with him in achieving his vision for Celina to be designated as the Halloween Capital of North Texas. Philip, we sincerely appreciate your efforts to bring vibrant events and opportunities for connections between our community and Downtown.
