Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are an intergral part in helping Anchorage Parks and Recreation achieve its mission of Healthy Parks, Healthy People.

Every year, our dedicated volunteers better and beautify Anchorage's parks and trails through picking up trash, digging holes, building trails, reporting crime, pulling weeds, removing graffiti, planting flowers, and so much more. More importantly, our volunteers build relationships with each other and within the communities they serve.

Curious about how you, your organization, or your community can be involved? Click on the links below to learn more about our individual programs, or contact the Parks and Recreation Volunteer Coordinator Michelle Fehribach at 343-4587 or

Graffiti Busters - Call us to report graffiti and we'll set you up with the right supplies.

Park Volunteer - If you are a group leader setting up service time for your group, get in touch with us and we can help in planning a project for your group.

Recreation programs - If you have a talent you'd like to share, consider teaching at one of our Recreation Centers. Volunteer to teach a class, help with little swimmers, or share your passion and talent for sports with Anchorage youth. Some volunteer opportunities may require a background check.
