Volunteer with us and, as a result, you’ll learn patience, understanding and the ability one person has to positively influence and change the life of another.
Who can volunteer? Buddy volunteers are predominantly high schooler students who receive community service hours for their participation. We do offer other volunteer opportunities, for example, to mature elementary and middle school students and always welcome adult volunteers.
How does it work? Players are matched with their own “Buddy” volunteer for the entire season. Our volunteers work with our Coaches to create an environment void of physical, social and cultural barriers so there are “NO LIMITS.”
Requirements: Volunteering is not a casual commitment! Volunteers are required to attend at least 80% of the game days. It’s critical to the success of our program because your player will be looking forward to see you there for them each game day. The interaction between our players and volunteers is what makes the magic happen!
Scholarships: Did you know that we offer 5 different scholarships? Graduating high school seniors, planning to attend a 2 or 4 year college, can apply. (see our scholarship tab for more details)
Parkland Buddy Sports is authorized through the schools to provide community service hours to our student volunteers. Since 2002, our student volunteers, who represent more than 60 area schools, have earned more than tens of thousands of community service hours.
