The St. Louis Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA) has a variety of committees that need dedicated volunteers like you to help make Downtown an even better neighborhood than it already is.

Contact us if you want to volunteer for one of the following committees.

Building Captain’s

The Building Captain’s Committee reaches out to people living in each building of our neighborhood to distribute and share DNA updates and information. This includes placing or handing out flyers, and developing building captains.


The Development Committee works to  seek out new revenue streams for DNA, create volunteer opportunities for members, and manage the fundraising infrastructure of the association.


The Outreach/Events Committee organizes the DNA social events such as the Neighborhood Happy Hours, Coffee with a Cop, Taste of St. Louis, and the Downtown STL Homes Tour. This includes planning and volunteering the day of events. This includes developing relationships with street-level small businesses open to the public in the Small Business Collaborative.


The Membership Committee works to reach out to Downtown residents and merchants to increase DNA membership and voter registration.

Urban Spaces

The Urban Spaces Committee’s purpose is to develop and implement community-driven plans to improve our neighborhood parks, infrastructure, vacant buildings and lots, and other issues affecting the day-to-day use of the urban space in our neighborhood.


The Safety Committee works with residents and employees on strategies to improve neighborhood safety. This includes implementing and sustaining the Neighborhood Ownership Model in Downtown, which entails meeting with our Downtown police officers, working alongside the Circuit Attorney’s Office to conduct court advocacy, hosting neighborhood walks, and any other activities associated with safety. Click here to email the Safety Committee.
