Teen Workreation

Gain valuable work experience, have a blast and work outdoors...while volunteering with Parks and Recreation!


Application and Information  Please note application deadlines below!

Teens, ages 13 to 16*, can volunteer with Parks and Recreation to work with kids in their neighborhood parks this summer! If you are interested in getting on-the-job training in the Parks and Recreation field, we may have a volunteer position for you. 
Work with Parks and Recreation Staff as a:

  • Jr. KIA Camp Counselor*
  • Jr. Lifeguard**
  • Jr. MORE Facilitator
  • Jr. Swim Instructor/WSI**
We know teens are busy in the summer. You may choose in advance the number of hours you’d like to volunteer per week, plus, we’ll do our best to schedule your volunteer hours on the days and times that work for you.  Teen volunteers are individuals serving of their own accord, gaining valuable job experience, and making new friends. 

Teen Workreators will receive valuable training like First-Aid/CPR, plus earn great job experience. Teens will have a chance to earn incentives such as a pizza party at Splash Montana, rock climbing and more!
