Volunteer Opportunities



What's the best way to impact your community... VOLUNTEER!

Moon Township Parks & Recreation has many volunteer opportunities.  We welcome people of all ages, abilities, and interests to join us in improving our community programs, events, and facilities.  Our Community Outreach Coordinator Lauren Madison will help you to find the volunteer opportunity that fits your interests best.

Certain programs serve many children and seniors.  Due to this contact with state defined vulnerable populations, volunteers may be required to complete their ACT 153 Clearances.  These clearances include the PA Criminal History Check, PA Child Abuse History Clearance, and the FBI Federal Criminal History Fingerprint Check.  Volunteers who have been residents of the state of PA may complete a disclosure statement in place of the FBI Criminal History Clearance.
