We have a wide array of volunteer positions within the Peoria Park District, including ongoing Regular Volunteer opportunities, Special Event opportunities, Volunteer Coaches opportunities, as well as opportunities to Volunteer at the Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum.

General Paper Application

*This application is a questionnaire that allows us to place you on an assignment that best suits your skill level and interest. We will also arrange for a brief meeting/interview before placement. Once these steps are complete, you may begin!

Take a look at our latest volunteer newsletter, The Vine, below!

     


 

WHAT IS A REGULAR VOLUNTEER?

Regular Volunteers are those who wish to serve in the same capacity on a regular basis. This might include supervising a weekly after-school program, weeding and pruning at Luthy Botanical Garden, or any number of regular opportunities.

The time commitment depends on your schedule and the needs of each facility. As they serve the community with us, PPD volunteers team with staff to offer time, expertise and energy. We couldn’t do all that we do without them! We invite you to join them and make a difference in your community. There is a recurrent need for volunteers throughout the Park District.

You can CLICK HERE for Regular Volunteer Opportunities and apply online!

WHAT IS A SPECIAL EVENT VOLUNTEER?

If your available time to volunteer is limited, you may want to consider being a Special Event Volunteer. You’ll find that volunteering is your ticket into the event and sometimes includes a hidden bonus or two!

Perhaps you might enjoy volunteering with a group of friends or your family. Once you’ve experienced the fun and excitement of volunteering for a Park District special event, you will understand why volunteers return year after year. We also welcome calls from philanthropy chairs to schedule their members to volunteer for special projects or existing events.

There are numerous special events each year from which to choose!

 CLICK HERE for upcoming events, and sign up online!

If you see an event you’d like to help out with, you can also call us at 681-2827 or email us at [email protected] with your contact information and the dates/time(s) you are available.
