Therapeutic Recreation Volunteer

Frederick County Parks and Rec provides various therapeutic recreation programs for people with various disabilities and health conditions, including sports, art, fitness, social groups, and more. Volunteering with these programs is not only rewarding, but also provides the opportunity to make new friends and get to know the local community in a new way.

Volunteers will be responsible for helping to implement different activities, teaching individuals the skills needed to participate in the activities, and having fun! Enthusiasm, patience, and a willingness to learn are a must!

Volunteer opportunities include:


  • Peer Buddy (Youth)
  • Participant Companion (Adult)
  • Program Volunteer
