    Volunteer With Us

    We love our volunteers! The time they commit to working with Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation (CCPR) truly makes our parks and programs better for the community. 

    As a volunteer with us, you will gain real-world experience and make a difference in the community. Whether you’re on your own, with a friend or with a larger group, we have a variety of volunteer projects for groups of all sizes.

    Our volunteer opportunities range from getting your hands dirty in our parks, to assisting our staff with recreation and adaptive programs. Volunteering with CCPR is a great way to earn community service hours while impacting our environment and community.

    We Have Opportunities for All Ages

    • Our Park Stewardship program offers wonderful opportunities for our younger volunteers. Volunteers 16 years and younger can participate with the the presence of a parent or guardian.
    • Adaptive, Monon Community Center and Extended School Enrichment program volunteers must be 14 years old or older.
    • Summer Camp Series and Park Stewardship volunteers must be 16 years old or older to volunteer independently.¬†
