Volunteer and Vendor Information

The Waukegan Park District would not be as successful as it is today without the exceptional talents of our vendors and volunteers. Our programs, facilities and committees serve the needs of our entire community. Our volunteers play a critical role in our exceptional service delivery. Vendors enhance the user’s experience at events and programs. We offer many opportunities to get involved year-round, such as: youth sports coaching, park beautification, special events and program assistance, as well as advisory committee citizen representatives.

Youth Sports Coaches

Every coach plays a critical role in helping to define a child’s experience when learning to play a recreational sport. If you’re interested in making a positive impact on the life of a young athlete, this is the place for you. We are continuously seeking volunteer coaches for the following sports: flag football, basketball and t-ball.

Park Volunteers

With 47 parks and facilities to maintain, we welcome the assistance from citizen volunteers and amateur or master gardeners to assist in the following projects: planting flowers and maintaining flower beds, cleaning up debris and leaves.

Volunteers or organizations interested in helping beautify or sponsor one of the district’s more than 47 parks can help by planting and maintaining flower beds, laying sod, cleaning up debris or by offering a host of other park-related assistance throughout the year.
