The hard work and support provided by community volunteers allows DPR to extend the impact of many of our programs and services. A volunteer is anyone who chooses to perform services for DPR without momentary compensation or in expectation of any compensation. Volunteers under 18 must have written consent from a parent or guardian before volunteering. In addition, a volunteer must be officially vetted and complete the DPR Volunteer Certification Process prior to performing any volunteer service.

If your group or organization would like to volunteer click one of the links below for sports available or contact us via e-mail at [email protected].
