Community Service

You can fulfill your court ordered community service requirements through Tucson Parks and Recreation.

There are 5 steps for approval:

  • Disqualification Acts: A list of "Disqualification Acts" will be provided once you contact us. A person will be disqualified from providing services if they were involved in any of the offenses on the list. 
  • Volunteer Screening: A volunteer screening will be done to ensure that only those volunteers meeting the established criteria will be working in our facilities.
  • Community Service Application: Information will be collected solely for the purpose of determining the applicant's eligibility for acceptance into the community service program.
  • Community Service Agreement: A signed agreement stating that an individual will comply with our policies and procedures. We reserve the right to terminate if requirements are not met.
  • Waiver of Liability: A signed document containing emergency information and a release of a participant's legal rights in situations such as injury and property loss or damage. 

Please email us at if you are interested in fulfilling your community service requirements through Parks and Recreation.
