Individual Teens and Families

Teenagers and families can learn a great deal while volunteering in Prospect Park. We offer different opportunities for different age groups. 

We have two special events for families with supervised children (ages 4-13):

  • Junior Volunteer Corps: On select weekends in April and November, we welcome families and youth groups under 13 years of age to come with their guardians and join us for a day of service as we spruce up the Park.
  • Nature's Helpers: From April through June, and September through December, we welcome families to help keep the Park clean.

We welcome all individual teenagers to join all of our regular, individual volunteer opportunities. Here are the steps:

To bring a group of volunteers to the Park, please fill out our group volunteer inquiry form. Please indicate if you are interested in a weekday opportunity.
