The Department of Community Services (DCS) promotes, supports and celebrates volunteer engagement in Cecil County through:
- Volunteer Cecil - a web-based system connecting individuals with volunteer opportunities. Organizations utilizing volunteers have access to the web-based system to post needs and events. Volunteer Cecil is managed by the Community Partnerships Division and supported by the Community Services Foundation, Inc.
- The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) - a grant-funded initiative through the Corporation for National and Community Service, which strives to place adults 55+ in meaningful service activities.
