Volunteens

Looking for ways to give back to your community? Become a Volunteen! This volunteer program offers teens the opportunity to become involved in their community while receiving work experience and leadership training throughout the summer.

About the Program

As a Diamond Bar Volunteen you may find yourself assisting Tiny Tot instructors with youth in a classroom setting filled with crafts and playtime, demonstrating to campers how to create a lanyard but also engaging them in sports and even weekly excursions at Summer Day Camp, assisting Seniors with Bingo and monthly dances and/or helping set up the movie screen at Concerts and Movies in the Park. Thirteen-year-olds may only be assigned to Concerts in the Park and senior programing. Limited positions are available.

All of these activities are leadership and work experience that may lead you to a future job in recreation. Your hours will be tallied for required school/church volunteer hours. At the end of the program you will receive a certificate and a letter from the Recreation Specialist stating what program you volunteered in and your total hours.
