San Mateo County Parks is beginning to implement several new programs and events to encourage citizen science, community engagement, and environmental education within our parks. Volunteers are crucial to our events and our success. The Special Events Volunteer will help park staff make the event a success. Events, depending on the size, will require a set-up, assistance during the event, and a break-down when the event ends.

Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age, willing to represent the Department in a volunteer uniform, and be able to volunteer a minimum of four hours a month. Volunteers must have good communication skills. You may be required to lift up to 30 pounds

Our ideal volunteer candidates are comfortable interacting with a variety of individuals in a culturally diverse environment, reliable, able to remain calm under pressure and able to follow directions in a fast paced and often changing environment.
