Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking to get more involved and make a difference in the community? Whether the need is to accumulate volunteer or service hours, or simply help, there are a number of great opportunities available throughout the year. We are seeking friendly and enthusiastic individuals, groups, and organizations of all ages to volunteer their time and talents to the Parks and Recreation Department. These opportunities fall into two basic categories.  

Community Outreach

Volunteer assistance is needed in youth, adult and senior citizen programs, programs for the disabled, athletics, special events, community centers, Osceola Golf Course and Roger Scott Tennis Center.  

Community Service

Park beautification, cleanup, and environmental awareness are instrumental in protecting Pensacola’s resources. There are many needs including litter clean up and recycling, painting over graffiti, parade bead removal, minor repairs and improvement, and landscaping.

The gift of your talent and time are appreciated!

“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.” ~ Sherry Anderson
