(We've left the information up for your future reference only. NO applications are currently being accepted.)

CIVICS Volunteer Program
Welcome to Team-Up Against Graffiti (T.A.G.) Program.
If you are here to report graffiti in progress, please call 911. If you are reporting graffiti, please call the Service Request Hot Line at 209-840-6111.
The Oakdale T.A.G. Graffiti Abatement Volunteer Program is an all-volunteer Oakdale CIVICS program operated under the direction of the Oakdale Police Department.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the Oakdale T.A.G. program, simply complete a volunteer application.
Our citizens and the City will come together to help maintain our streets, parks and properties by immediately removing any graffiti on public or private property to maintain the City of Oakdale’s secure and desirable community status.
Purpose: To organize citizens of Oakdale to control graffiti in their community. The quicker that graffiti is removed the least likely an area will be defaced again. By creating one centralized program issues that are reported can be addresses immediately. The City will provide training, instructions, and cleaning products to volunteers.
Currently we are recruiting volunteers for our T.A.G. program.
If you are a property owner that has been a victim of graffiti and would like for the T.A.G. Program to assist you please fill out a consent form and submit it to the Oakdale Police Department.
The Adopt-A-Park (AAP) and Adopt-A-Trail (AAT) program is a public service program that has been developed as part of the City of Oakdale’s CIVICS Volunteer Program. This is one way for the citizens and the City to come together to help beautify Oakdale's Parks and Trails.
A minimum commitment of one year of service to the adopted area is required, performing tasks at the location at least twice a month. Volunteers can pick up litter, rake leaves, remove graffiti, report hazards, sweep pathways, pull weeds and clean play structures. All that the program requires is your time.
Making the changes needed with the strength of many.
Oakdale has a wonderful tradition of volunteerism going back to the city's founding. Our first city park, Dorada Park, was created through the volunteer efforts of Dora and Ada Rodden during the early years of Oakdale's rich history. This volunteer culture continues today under the Oakdale CIVICS Volunteer Program. CItizens Volunteering in City Services (CIVICS) supports the volunteer activities and opportunities in virtually every city department.
Volunteer participation in city services helps to enrich the community and fosters a sense of parnership between Oakdale citizens and city government. The CIVICS Volunteer Program allows all Citizens the opportunity to work together and strengthen their relationship with their City and each other. Opportunities are available throughout all the City departments.
If you enjoy meeting new people, getting to know others and working towards improving your community for generations to come, then the Oakdale CIVICS Volunteer Program is for you! Volunteering for a City volunteer program or project can be flexible with your available schedule and you can decide what amount of time you feel you can dedicate. Some programs are just a few hours a month, while other can be many hours each week and provide a long term opportunity.
