Join Us And Share Your Talents!One of Parkland’s greatest resources is the diversity of people who call this city home. By choosing to volunteer, all Parkland residents have the opportunity to strengthen our great city by connecting with their families, their neighbors, and their communities through service.
Serving others is as easy as planting a garden, reading to a child, assisting with special events, working in a park, assisting with tasks at the Parkland Library, or educating families about important programs that can empower their lives and help break cycles of poverty. By sharing the resource of your time, you can empower other residents through service, and get connected to the city’s wealth of diverse communities and people.

Things to Consider Before Selecting a Volunteer Position
Time CommitmentAre you looking for a volunteer position where you serve a few hours each week, one where you serve occasionally as needed, or a full-time opportunity where you dedicate a year to service? When selecting a volunteer opportunity, consider the amount of time you can realistically devote on a regular basis, and for what length of time overall.
Opportunities that are more intense in nature will often ask that you make a six-month or one-year commitment, and will vary in the number of hours per week you are asked to serve (1-40 hours per week). Other opportunities may be one-time events, or on a periodic basis over an extended period of time. Knowing the amount of time you can, and are willing to, serve will help you select a volunteer opportunity that will suit your needs.
