Our local parks, trails and open spaces are great places for youth to volunteer.
Youth will get to spend time outdoors, have fun with friends and help beautify our public spaces.
Clark County offers several volunteer opportunities for youth and can accommodate groups and individuals.
All ages can participate, but youth 13 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Teenagers 14 to 17 will need a signed Minor Consent Form (PDF) to participate without a parent or guardian.
All volunteers are required to wear closed-toe shoes and long pants while working. Remember to dress for the weather.
The Volunteer Program Coordinator will keep track of volunteer hours and sign off on any forms confirming completion of service hours.
Community VolunTOUR Program
Clark County Public Works and the City of Vancouver have partnered to offer after-school service opportunities at parks and other sites throughout Clark County.
Work parties are planned on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of September, October, November, February, March, April and May from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Volunteers remove invasive plants, perform trail maintenance, plant trees and much more. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to learn a little history about the city and county's most unique sites. Volunteers can collect stamps at each location and win special prizes!
This opportunity is great for families, teens and volunteers of all ages. It's a great way to meet new people and complete community service requirements while having fun. Please RSVP in advance.
Volunteers are required to wear closed-toe shoes and long pants while working. Remember to dress for the weather.
Youth younger than 18 must bring a signed Clark County/City of Vancouver minor consent form (PDF).
Eagle Scout projects
Clark County frequently collaborates with local scouts as they work toward their Eagle Scout Award. The county has many projects available at parks, trails and green spaces for scouts looking for a project. The county will consider other projects that scouts develop on their own.
