Volunteers in Parks
The City of Tallahassee Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Affairs Department (PRNA) is launching a new park volunteer program, known as Volunteers In Parks or "VIP".
With the diversity of projects, tasks and programs that PRNA oversees, there is no limit to the volunteer opportunities, no matter what a person's skill set, trade or interests. Volunteers are needed who can provide maintenance assistance in the form of general clean-up, such as picking up litter, painting, weeding and minor planting; provide direct monetary assistance for facility enhancements; look out for vandalism and maintenance issues and report such items to the department, and provide input to the Department on park development and programs.
The VIP program is a great opportunity for community organizations, businesses, neighborhood associations and individuals to become directly involved in improving our parks, landscaped areas, greenways and recreational facilities to help build community spirit and a sense of civic responsibility. PRNA staff will assist with available resources to provide training and supervise the progress of the work of each individual or group.
By supplementing City resources, the VIP program will enhance the condition of and help beautify our parks, recreational areas and open space in neighborhoods throughout Tallahassee and will help improve the quality of life for our entire community.
If you are interested in learning more about this fulfilling opportunity, please download and complete the application (PDF), or contact Andrea Griffin with PRNA at 891-3846. A background check will be completed prior to approval.
