Do you only have volunteer opportunities for groups?

No! Every extra hand goes a long way to helping achieve our goals. If you are an individual interested in helping transform your community, we want to help make it happen, and we have a number of ways for individual volunteers to contribute. Learn More

How can my group become involved?

Park Pride offers a lot of exciting ways for groups large and small to participate in improving our parks. Whether you’re with a community or corporate group, volunteering in a park is a great way for you and your peers to give back to the community while promoting teamwork and healthy outdoor activity.

We are volunteering at an upcoming event. What should we expect?

Park Pride coordinates a wide-variety of volunteer projects. While each project and each park is different, there are a few things that you can always expect at a Park Pride volunteer day:

  • All volunteer projects take place in a park.
  • Most projects last three hours, usually from 9:00am until 12:00pm. The three-hour project time allows a group to accomplish significant results without becoming exhausted.
  • Volunteer events take place any day during the week or weekend.
  • Park Pride staff arrives early to ensure tools are organized and everything is in order.
  • Everyone signs in and completes a liability waiver before beginning to work. Following a brief welcome and introduction to the project – including a demonstration on how to safely use the necessary tools – volunteers will get to work right away.
  • Volunteers are encouraged to work at their own pace to maintain an enjoyable experience.
  • Volunteers are asked to help collect and organize tools to leave the park in pristine condition.
