What we do

The Mayor’s Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service (OCEVS) helps residents make positive change in their communities. Toward this goal, we work to reduce barriers and expand capacity for participation.

As part of the larger Mayor’s Office of Public Engagement, OCEVS:

  • Brings together government leaders, community members, and volunteers.
  • Helps partners offer impactful service opportunities and celebrate the service community.
  • Guides partners in making data-driven decisions and centering equity in their work.

Our programs support local, community-driven problem solving. They include:


1401 John F. Kennedy Blvd.
