Spring Into Volunteering

Like daylight savings time, Denton Parks & Recreation volunteer opportunities have sprung into spring. We’re ready to coach those kiddos, plan Senior Center programming, and get those outdoors all beautiful.

Together, with the help of volunteers, we can make our city a great place to grow and play!

Ready to lend your talents to youth sports? Have a skill you’d like to share with our Senior Center members? We want to hear from you!

To inquire about athletics coaching, email Chris Escoto, chris.escoto@cityofdenton.com.

Make a pitch to share your skills through a course of your creation with Denton seniors. Email Megan Thomas, megan.thomas@cityofdenton.com.

Soak up the rays and work toward a vibrant community!
