V.I.P. (Volunteers in Parks)

Do you enjoy your local parks and programs?
Do you have skills or talents you would like to share with others?
Do you like to meet and work with people?

If you answered yes to any of these question, the Rockdale County Recreation and Maintenance Division has something for you. It is called the Volunteers in Parks (VIP) Program and it is for everyone – professionals, senior citizens, students, young people and civic groups.

Volunteers are always welcome and needed for a variety of projects, programs and special events. There is almost no limit to the types of work that volunteers can perform. Interested persons must be 14 years old or older to volunteer.

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Park/Site Aide
As a park/site aid, you would assist full-time staff in the daily operations of a facility during the summer and other high-use periods. Work may include providing information to the public, cleaning restrooms and collecting litter.

Trail Worker
Trail workers assist park personnel in all aspects of trail maintenance. This can be done individually or in small groups. Work may be done year-round but springtime is the best season.

Special Event Volunteer
Special events are great for individuals or groups looking for short-term, limited duration projects. Events might include concerts, arts and crafts festivals, park cleanups, holiday events and dedications. Generally, you would help with registration, setup and breakdown, information booths, and planning and coordination.
