PARKS, RECREATION AND COMMUNITY SERVICES

Since 1981, family, friends, and residents have made significant contributions to the Inglewood community through the Volunteer Program operated by the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department.


The Department enhances the social, recreational and cultural quality of life for persons who live, work, and play in the City by incorporating the skills, talents, and interests of volunteers into daily operations.

Communication, Collaboration and Cooperation are the driving force behind our success in “Creating Community Through People, Parks, and Programs”. During 2006, volunteers donated 44,160 hours to Departmental operations, programs and activities, a contribution worth $$441,600.


Please contact Ms. Trina Tyson, Volunteer Program Coordinator, for current and upcoming service opportunities at (310) 412-5508.

You can also visit the Volunteer Program Office at Rogers Park, 400 W. Beach Avenue, during the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
