The Volunteen Program is a year-round program, June to June with an emphasis on summer programming June through August. Volunteens will have the opportunity to broaden their horizons and experience what it means to help out in their community. Volunteens will assist Recreation staff with youth attending the Recreation Division’s Aquatics program, day camps, sports programs, classes, and special events at our local parks and schools. After the conclusion of summer programs, other volunteer opportunities will be available such as Inside Upland Family Preparedness Day, Scary-A-Faire and Breakfast with Santa. The Volunteen Program will culminate with a recognition event in the spring of 2016.
