Volunteer

 
Port Washington Parks & Recreation offers a variety of fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities at sites across the City! Annually, Port residents volunteer over 1,500 hours with us to help make our parks great! Volunteer coaches are always needed in our youth programs - and the parks, gardens, and natural areas welcome extra hands. 

Improve our Shorelines - Shoreline restoration creates habitat for fish, birds and marine mammals and enhances the natural beauty of our beaches. Whether it is a beach/shoreline litter pick-up or attacking invasive species - opportunities await! 

Your Neighborhood parks - We have 30 neighborhood parks! Bring your neighbors together and have fun supporting one of our featured park projects. Park enhancements include weeding shrub and flower beds, mulching trees, play area maintenance and litter pick-up.

Small Group and Scout Projects - Small Group and Eagle Scout Projects support park initiatives and infrastructure. You will make a big difference to Port Washington’s Parks and Green Spaces. We have parks projects available, many of which require planning and fundraising. If you are a Scout, please contact us for more details.

Port Washington High School Port Pride Hours - Throughout the year we give Port Pride hours to High School students when they help out with our Park & Rec programs.  Port Pride students are critical for the success of our young children programs, for example: Beginner Soccer Clinics, Lil' Guys Tennis, Polar Express, etc.  These High School students provide extra eyes, attention and aide to our program instructor.  If you are a student looking for volunteer hours please click on one of the Sign-Up Genius links below and let us know when you can help. 
 
Port Pride/Volunteer Opportunities:
While knowledge of the sport or activity is a bonus, no experience is necessary.  We do ask that you must enjoy working with small children and be willing to give them your undivided attention.
