Volunteer At Turtle Park!
Friends of Friendship “Turtle” Park is is run by a Board of Directors made up of community volunteers who are committed to Turtle Park. But we can’t do it alone! FOFP relies one hundred percent on volunteers to successfully run the programs mentioned throughout this website. Volunteer opportunities range from an hour to a day to a year, depending on your level of interest and availability. We need volunteers to work 1-hour shifts at our events. (<Boom, link to Events page) We need volunteers to spend half a day beautifying the park with us. And we need people to serve one year terms on our committees.
Our volunteer committees are chaired by board members and open to community members. They include: Communications, Facilities, Programming, Sponsors and Volunteers. Duties are a light lift and vary by committee. For example, Facilities committee members keep an eye on the physical condition of the park and report maintenance issues to the city. Programming committee members survey the community about what classes they’d like to see at the park and then lobby the city to provide what the community wants. If you would like to volunteer for a committee, please email Volunteer@TurtlePark.Org.
