Teens, ages 13 to 16*, can volunteer with Parks and Recreation to work with kids in their neighborhood parks this summer! If you are interested in getting on-the-job training in the Parks and Recreation field, we may have a volunteer position for you.

We know teens are busy in the summer. You may choose in advance the number of hours you’d like to volunteer per week, plus, we’ll do our best to schedule your volunteer hours on the days and times that work for you.
