Volunteer to help build a playground near you!
Want to help build a playground—in one day?
Don't worry, you don't have to know the first thing about building a playground to volunteer your time and sweat. All you need is a can-do spirit and a pair of shoes you don't mind getting dirty!
Sound like fun? Fill out the form below to help us connect you to a volunteer opportunity in your area. On your right is a list of cities we're building in this month.
Please note that our playground builds are sponsored by our generous funding partners. The majority of our volunteer spots are reserved for people from the immediate community and for our funding partners' volunteers. We can usually only take a few volunteers from the general public, on a first-come, first-served basis. If we can't accommodate your request right now, we'll keep you posted on future opportunities in our monthly newsletter.
