CPL Volunteers contribute to our mission of an inclusive society for all people; extending social connections with clients, reducing social isolation; and enhancing CPL services by sharing skills, time and mutual interests. We are always looking for volunteers to come and join our team, so we'd love to hear from you!

Are you the ultimate creative? Volunteer and make music with CPL!
How do bands usually make music? With guitars and drums? We can hear you saying, "tell me something new!" At CPL Springfield we’re true creatives; making music with unique objects – forget the piano, we’re playing the paintbrush! And it doesn’t stop there – we’re not just writing, creating and performing, we’re also playing Prince and producing all our own music using GarageBand software.
If you can think outside the box, play the drums on the box and then wrap the box up with a nice little bow using GarageBand software, we can’t wait for you to join us as a CPL GarageBand Music volunteer!
