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 monthly 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. Our 2019 calendar of volunteer projects can be found here.

We also have a Park Ambassador program and are now recruiting for 2019! Our Park Ambassador Volunteer Program supports engaging the public in our art initiatives and in playable spaces throughout our parks. Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis with interviews starting in March. Apply now for a great summer on The Greenway! 

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!
