How can you help?

By becoming a VIP (Volunteer in Parks), you will be working side by side with the LaPorte County Parks staff. Together we can provide more awareness and enjoyment of the resources available in LaPorte County to all citizens. You will be helping us meet our mission. Volunteers are very important people to the LaPorte County Parks system.

“There is only one success, to be able to spend your life in your own way” -Christopher Morely


Why Become A VIP?

Volunteering has a long tradition in American society. People volunteer for different reasons. Perhaps they want to make a difference in their lives or in the lives of others, they want to give back to their community, they feel strongly for the cause the organization works towards, they have spare time they want to fill with something worthwhile, or for many other reasons. Whatever your reason, being a volunteer makes you a highly valued resource to the LaPorte County Parks and to the community as a whole.
