Volunteers Make a Difference!

From the Freedom Four to youth soccer, the Glen Ellyn Park District relies on volunteers to make many of its programs and events successful. Becoming a Glen Ellyn Park District volunteer has its benefits. You can get outdoors, make new friends, enhance work and life experiences, and most of all…have FUN doing it! If you are looking for an opportunity to get involved in the community, please consider volunteering with the Park District!
