Our Philosophy

At the Fox Valley Park District, we believe volunteerism is one of the highest forms of recreation. Community involvement is a vital key in staying active and making a difference in others’ lives. Volunteer participation in the Fox Valley Park District instills a sense of ownership and responsibility. By sharing time and talent, there will be opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, meet new people and make a difference. Volunteer opportunities are based on District needs around the community and we can’t guarantee accommodation of specific locations or tasks. Please note volunteer hours at Fox Valley Park District do not fulfill court-ordered service hours.

Why Volunteer?

  • To continue learning and growing
  • To develop new interests and friendships
  • To share your time and talent with your community
  • To gain valuable work experience
  • To stay active
  • To have fun

Who Can Volunteer?

Volunteers must be 14 years of age to independently volunteer. Youth younger than age 14 may volunteer with a parent or legal guardian.

Your Role As A Volunteer

All Fox Valley Park District volunteers are representatives of the park district. All the representatives are courteous and helpful to guests and come to each event ready to be a part of a team and get the job done while having a good time.

What is the Volunteer Time Commitment?

This is up to each individual. Some volunteers may wish to volunteer in the same capacity on a regular basis for a period of time, such as one day a week. Others may find that volunteering for special events fits better with their schedule. When you volunteer for a special event, your volunteer status is your ticket to the event. Many people choose to volunteer to an annual event year after year.
