Group Volunteer Opportunities

Park Pride offers a lot of exciting ways for groups large and small to participate in improving our community parks.

Park Pride’s volunteer workdays have been temporarily placed on hold due to safety concerns around COVID-19 and large group gatherings. We are working hard to adjust so that we can resume programming with modified procedures to protect volunteer and staff safety. We will be monitoring public health information and following guidelines from the CDC, as well as the City of Atlanta’s phased reopening plan.

IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING WITH US – please complete the form below, and we will reach out as soon as we resume volunteer services!

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.

What to Expect

Park Pride custom coordinates a wide-variety of projects to create meaningful opportunities for groups interested in volunteering their time and efforts. From mulching and painting, to picking up litter and clearing invasive plants, volunteers take on a wide variety of beneficial park improvement projects. While each project and each park is different, there are a few things that you can always expect while planning or participating in a volunteer day with Park Pride:

  • A highly organized and efficient volunteer experience in a park.
  • Volunteer events take place any day during the week or weekend, and most projects last for three hours, usually from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • Park Pride will provide tools and gloves.
  • Knowledgeable staff on site that will provide project and safety demonstrations and answer any questions from volunteers.
  • Lots of FUN!

Next Steps

Once we receive your completed form, Park Pride will confirm we received your request and to ask any follow-up questions. We’ll coordinate with our Friends of the Park groups, Atlanta BeltLine Adopter groups, and the appropriate parks department to determine what the most appropriate and beneficial project will be. Park Pride will develop the scope of work for your project, coordinate all appropriate materials, tools, and gloves, and offer day-of project management. All you have to do is show up and volunteer!

For smaller groups (up to around 40 volunteers, depending on the project scope), Park Pride has enough tools and gloves to outfit your volunteers free of charge. For larger groups, we rent tools from the Atlanta Community ToolBank and we ask the volunteer group to cover the nominal tool rental fee.
