We offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities for members of the community to support Alviso Adobe Community Park staff. If you plan to volunteer more than once you need to visit the Alviso Adobe Volunteer page in Better Impact to sign up for a Better Impact volunteer account.

Community Service Hours

Volunteers who are 9th grade and above can volunteer at Alviso Adobe to fulfill community service hours for high school graduation or other commitments. If you are volunteering more than once you must have a Better Impact account and complete fingerprinting to be eligible to sign up for shifts.

Volunteer shifts are scheduled during most Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and 1 p.m.-4 p.m. year-round.

Typically volunteers assist with maintaining native plant gardens, cleaning historic buildings, and helping staff prepare for environmental education programs.

Group Volunteering

If you are part of a group of 15 or less people, you can help with large gardening and maintenance projects or get assigned a special project. Groups can be accommodated during weekend dates and times may vary.

Contact us at alvisoadobe@cityofpleasantonca.gov to discuss your group’s schedule and interests.


A docent is a volunteer educator. Our docents learn to share the history of the peoples and cultures of the Amador Valley. Docents can help host school field trips (Wednesday – Friday), lead weekend tours, and assist with special events and projects. Docents must be 16 years and up.
