Volunteer Mission

Mission: The volunteer and community outreach programs foster opportunities for volunteers to exercise their passion for public service while providing support to the overall mission of the Anne Arundel County’s Department of Recreation and Parks. 


Vision: The vision for the future of the volunteer and community outreach programs is to have facility user groups, public and private schools, for-profit and non-profit agencies, and individual volunteers support recreation programs and parks through continual and sustainable volunteer project planning.  With all these community members’ support, the youth in Anne Arundel County will continue to value the parks, trails, and sports fields in which they recreate.  Businesses, schools and agencies are incorporating volunteerism and community outreach as best practices, and because of this the residents of Anne Arundel County benefit.


Purpose Statement:  The Department of Recreation and Parks works in partnership with agencies, organizations, and schools to create unique, meaningful and sustainable community outreach and volunteer projects.  These projects strengthen neighborhoods and help foster a sense of community throughout Anne Arundel County.  Offering opportunities for youth to participate in hands on volunteering and community outreach in the areas they spend their time recreating creates a stewardship mindset for years to come.

Make a Difference Day 2014

Make a Difference Day was an amazing day in Anne Arundel County, MD! #MDDAY!
Volunteers started the morning at Quiet Waters Park, supporting the Bark 'N Dash 5K, which benefited Recreation Deeds for Special Needs. Volunteers included community members and students from Annapolis High School and Severn! AmeriCorps Alum Nicki Fiocco coordinated volunteers while AmeriCorps member Emily Grace took the lead.

The afternoon took us to Providence Park, where Abundant Life Church of Glen Bernie painted the concession building! 

Overall…it was a wonderful day with a lot of laughter, fun and giving back. Can't wait to do it again!
