Volunteer at DominGO! Hartford

DominGO! Hartford could not be possible without the help of amazing volunteers. Whether you're a resident who is passionate about helping Hartford grow, someone who wants to make new friends, or someone who just wants to enjoy an active day outside in the sun, we have plenty of volunteer opportunities for you.

Ways to

Set-Up & Take Down

Interested in seeing what happens behind the scenes of a citywide event? Join our Set-Up and Break Down team! Our Set-Up and Take Down teams will:

  • Assist with setting up EZ-Up tents at each of the activity hubs

  • Place signage along the routes

  • Help direct exhibitors and vendors to their appropriate activity hubs

  • Act as liaison between exhibitors and vendors to the DominGO! leadership team

  • Help with clean up and break down after the event

Intersection Monitors

Would you and a group of friends like to "adopt an intersection"? Get creative—give the intersection a theme and make it your own! Working as a team of four (supported by two police officers), Intersection Monitors are responsible for:

  • Stopping participants on the route, with signage or bright colored rope, when they come to a red light at a point where cars will be crossing the route.

  • Keeping participants from entering the intersection while cars move through the intersection on their green light. This is where the fun comes in—encourage idle participants to dance, create a silly handshake, or sing a song while waiting for the light to change!

  • When the participants have a green light, move the sign or rope and allow participants to move through the intersection.


We're seeking volunteers to help collect survey results at our upcoming DominGO! days. Evaluators will:

  • Collect information from DominGO! participants by encouraging them to fill out a short survey

  • Tally participants that pass by at the top of each hour

  • Gather testimonials from all different types of participants
