We will make reasonable accommodations and will work with the registrant, his or her family and others to ensure a safe and enjoyable leisure experience. If you are interested in participating in a park district program, please contact us so we can support your participation through observations, in-service or staff training, providing community leisure resources or the assistance of volunteers or “Leisure Buddies.” When filling out your park district registration form please check the box indicating you would like to be contacted regarding special accommodations.
Employment & Volunteers
SRSNLC programs rely on dedicated part-time program leaders and inclusion aides. Click here for the employment page and a list of special recreation employment opportunities.

SRSNLC is always looking for people interested in donating some time to a wonderful cause working with persons with disabilities. Volunteers should have a positive attitude, be outgoing and friendly and enjoy working with people of different backgrounds. Imagine being able to put a smile on a participant's face, that's why we need you!
