Volunteer Policy

The Geneseo Park District Board of Commissioners recognizes the important and vital role that volunteers play in the delivery of quality Park District programs and services to the constituents of the Park District and the surrounding areas. Utilizing the interests and skills of individuals residing in the community is a great resource to the community and promotes community support and spirit. These individuals make possible the implementation of an array of activities and provide the park district with an abundance of skills that would otherwise be unavailable. The increased number of programs and services enrich the mission of the Park District and assist in providing a beneficial quality of life to the residents of the Geneseo Park District.

The Geneseo Park District staff and commissioners will make every effort to recruit, train, supervise and recognize volunteers on an on-going basis.
