Lend a Hand -- Together We Can Make a Difference
Volunteer opportunities abound in the Department of Parks and Recreation. You can volunteer as a swim “buddy” in an adapted swimming class, be a summer camp volunteer, assist at fun special events like Family Skate Night and the Renaissance Fair, help to remove invasive plants from our parks, and much more.
I Can Bike
Can one week make a difference in the life of a child? Absolutely! iCan Bike Camp is coming to Kenmore Middle School from August 1 - 5. As a volunteer with iCan Bike you can help a child with a disability learn to ride a two-wheeler independently in only five days!
This is a learn to swim program for individuals ages 3 to adult with developmental disabilities. Volunteers are needed to assist one on one with participants in the water. The next session begins on Sunday, July 10.
Adapted Ice Skate Night
Volunteer to assist individuals with disabilities (and their families) as they ice skate, Saturday, July 9. Volunteers will be assigned tasks both on and off ice to best support our participants. Volunteers on the ice MUST already know how to ice skate.
Remove Invasive Plants
Join your neighbors one day every month as they restore the area's natural plant communities. Help remove plants like English ivy and bush honeysuckle which threaten the health of Arlington's parks and natural areas. This outdoor activity is great for groups, families and individuals.
