Lend a helping hand
Join the team of volunteers who contribute their time, energy and enthusiasm to the Hoffman Estates Park District. With an abundance of programs and events, and acres of gardens and park land, the Hoffman Estates Park District is a great place to lend your time or talent. Whether you want to assist with a special event, coach a sports team, beautify a park or work with children, we invite you to become a valuable member of our team!
This program is a great way for families, individuals, civic groups, businesses and organizations to play an active role in beautifying their parks. You can plant, water, weed, cultivate or participate in special projects at our various park sites. Find out more.
It takes many dedicated people to maintain and operate a project like the Vogelei CARES (Collection of Active Resources for Education & Stewardship) concept, and the efforts of our many volunteers can be seen everywhere in our garden display as well as the programs run for the enjoyment and learning experience of our guests.
A coach can have a monumental impact on a child just learning to play organized sports. We have a variety of different sports in need of volunteer coaches, including: basketball, soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, hockey and swimming. Anyone interested in coaching, receives specialized training.
Friends of HE Parks Foundation
Our Foundation is often looking for volunteers to help with annual fundraising events, from helping out at the annual Uncorked & Untapped Wine and Beer Tasting or Girls' Night Out to finding participants for the annual Celebri-Tee Golf Outing.
