Each year, volunteers dedicate thousands of hours to Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board programs. Our entire community benefits when YOU serve by coaching, gardening, instructing, or helping at a special event.
Recreation Volunteers – Coach youth sports or serve as instructors for classes offered in neighborhood parks.
Environmental Volunteers – One-time and ongoing opportunities are available to help with gardening, landscaping and invasive species removal projects.
Group Volunteer Projects – Groups ranging in size from 5 to 50 can assist with a variety of outdoor projects during non-snow months, which may include gardening, landscaping, or removing invasive species.
Special Events – Year-round community events help make Minneapolis vibrant for everyone! Help is needed at events such as holiday parties, 5K fun runs, neighborhood festivals, Earth Day, the Minneapolis Bike Tour, and more.
