At Parks & People, we are joined by a common bond: to make Baltimore a better place to live, work, play and learn. We also believe that we cannot achieve our mission without the help and support of people like you. We offer a variety of opportunities for individuals and groups of all sizes, abilities and interests to serve as a committed and caring volunteer. Please consider joining the Parks & People team by offering your time and talent to support our efforts.

Opportunities to get involved

Corporate Volunteer Opportunities

Opportunities for corporate groups to engage in meaningful volunteer work are available but are on an ad-hoc basis depending on programming and volunteer opportunity availability. The majority of opportunities are suitable for groups of 10-20 but larger and smaller may be welcome depending on the ongoing projects.

Natural Dye Initiative

Volunteers are needed to weed and harvest the Natural Dye Initiative gardens on our campus. Contact Zianab Sankoh at zianab.sankoh@parksandpeople.org if interested.
