In 2017, approximately 7000 VOLUNTEERS generously gave more than 45,000 HOURS helping out with Park projects, events, sports and recreation programs! All of this time added approximately $1,080,000 in value to YOUR Park & Recreation Department! We couldn't do what we do without our Volunteers...THANK YOU!
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 join our Volunteer Program - registration includes an on-line application and a background check. You MUST register/join 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).
- You do NOT need to join 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).
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 in the Therapeutic Recreation Division must be at least 18 years old.
