There are a variety of ways to get involved with Salt Lake County Parks & Recreation. Advisory board members, volunteer coaches, and those eager to preserve our open space lands are always needed to help make our shared spaces and programs great!
Parks & Recreation Advisory Board members review, deliberate, and make recommendations regarding issues related to parks and recreation facilities and programs countywide.
Board members volunteer their time and expertise for three-year terms and are appointed by the mayor, the county council, or both. Meetings generally take place on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.
Interested in serving? Apply online or download an application through the Mayor's Office.

From March through October, there are an array of volunteer opportunities with Salt Lake County Open Space for individuals and groups of all ages interested in environmental stewardship. Ongoing and one-day projects are available with no experience necessary.
Contact James Young at JTYoung@slco.org to get involved.
Volunteer Coaches are vital to our recreation programs. We encourage parents to get involved and assist their child and others in having a positive and fun experience in the sport of their choice.
Parents interested in coaching youth sports programs must submit the Coaches Volunteer Packet once a year, which includes the permission to run a background check.
