Volunteer to Serve

Welcome Tarrytowner,

Whether you're a long-time resident, or new to our community, we are grateful that you are even considering volunteering to support the Tarrytown Community. For years, we have benefited from those willing to give their free time to help weave the fabric of Tarrytown. We hope that you too will consider applying to serve as a volunteer on one of our many boards, councils or committees.

Should you decide to apply, you will be asked to share your experiences and interests in the Village. Please be as thorough as possible. If you have any questions, please reach out to the Village Clerk at 914-631-1652.

Please note that vacancies are not always predictable, and vary from year to year. The Village Board will try to match your experience and interest to the right position, but there is no way to know how long it may take for you to be appointed.  Most appointments are made annually in December, however, vacancies may occur over the course of the year and, should an appropriate opportunity arise, someone will reach out to you. 

Should you wish to learn more about the individual committees, please visit their pages by clicking the links below.

If you're ready to volunteer, please fill out an application
