Types of Jobs

  • Events: from setup and tear down to check-in tables and doing crafts, there are lots of jobs to do during events
  • Internship: interns are needed year-round.  If you are interested in working behind-the-scenes in parks & recreation and can dedicate at least two days a week for a season, we'd love to have you help out as an intern.  Contact recreation@lathrupvillage.org if you are interested.
