Volunteer with Parks & Recreation

Make an impact in your community! 

  • Opportunities to volunteer with Parks and Recreation are available for those 14 years of age or older. Individuals and groups can help on a one-day project or assist on an ongoing basis. Volunteers can assist with operations, recreation classes, youth sports, aquatics, and seniors programs.
  • Volunteers and interns must complete an application, which will be reviewed on an as-needed base. 
  • We will keep your application on file for six months. Submitting multiple applications does not increase your chance of placement. To obtain a volunteer application, please stop by the Recreation Department Office or call 805-646-5581 ext. 390.
