Employment and Volunteerism
The Illinois River Valley Special Recreation Association is always looking for fun loving, caring, and responsible individuals willing to serve their community through our program. We are interested in hiring hourly staff, seasonal coaches, camp counselors, and event chaperones who can help our participants enjoy the events to the fullest as well as have fun themselves. Anyone with the desire and commitment to helping others can apply for these exciting and interesting opportunities. Retired citizens in the community, leadership groups, volunteer service groups, and students in need of volunteer hours for school are encouraged to get involved as well. There are many ways to help out at IRVSRA. A park application and background check are required for both paid and volunteer opportunities. Download a Job Application HERE.
