Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Greenway! We strive to offer a rewarding, fun, and impactful experience for our volunteers, and their support allows us to maintain our organic parks and operations smoothly.

The majority of our volunteers work with our Horticulture staff during bi-weekly outdoor projects from March to December and enjoy getting fresh air and exercise while learning about our organic landscape practices and developing their gardening skills. Our skilled staff create a positive and productive experience and the work completed makes a visible impact on the neighborhood.

We also have two park-based Ambassador volunteer programs! Our Art Ambassador Volunteer Program supports engaging the public in our art initiatives. We are currently recruiting for our 2016 Art Ambassadors! Take a look at the Art Ambassador volunteer job description and application! We have also launched a Play Ambassador Volunteer Program to support play-based education throughout our parks. Learn more in our Play Ambassador volunteer job description and apply here

There are lots of ways to help the Greenway grow! We also have a variety of specialized volunteer positions that we recruit for as needed, and some opportunities in areas like public programs, special project assistance, and photography depending on individual skills, training, and interest. Learn more here!

We also have opportunities for corporate, nonprofit, and school groups to help out as well!
