HAPPY HOLIDAYS to ALL of our VOLUNTEERS!

You have given us the valuable gift of your time all of this year! Here's how 2018 adds up to date:

  • Approximately 5600 Volunteers joined forces with Park & Recreation from January through November, to support and supplement the efforts of the hard-working staff in YOUR Parks, Recreation Center, Nature Preserves and Nature Centers, and on the Greenways.
  • Volunteers have given more than 39,700 HOURS of their time, as Youth Sport Coaches, program assistants, tutors/mentors, Park project/event Volunteers, Nature Center volunteers, and much more.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR FANTASTIC VOLUNTEERS for taking so much PRIDE in YOUR Park & Recreation Department! YOU MAKE OUR COMMUNITY A BETTER PLACE!

 We LOVE our Volunteers, and we want to make it EASY for you to come and help your community! Here are a couple of things you need to know:

- For some Volunteer opportunities, you need to enroll in our Volunteer Program - enrollment includes an on-line application and a background check. For Volunteer Screening Guidelines click on the link below. You MUST register/enroll in the Volunteer Program to be a Coach for any sport; or to assist with an ongoing program on a regular basis (Example: tutoring once a week, teaching ESL).  To enroll in the Volunteer Program, please contact VolunteerServices@MeckNC.gov

- You do NOT need to enroll in the Volunteer Program for one-day events or projects, or to help with a program ONE time (Example: chaperoning ONE field trip for an after-school program; Volunteering for a Saturday project).

Please note: Criminal record checks are to be conducted on all applicants over the age of 16 when enrolling in our volunteer program. Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult that is at least 21 years old. Volunteers working with Therapeutic & Inclusive Recreation Services must be at least 18 years old.
