Volunteers

Polk Senior Games is an exciting and large event. For 16 days, nearly 2,500 seniors compete in 99+ events held in locations throughout Polk County. Over 750 volunteers are needed and come from parks & recreation departments, civic organizations, businesses, senior communities, recreation clubs, schools, and private citizens.

There are opportunities to help in all facets of the Games – distributing posters and brochures, soliciting door prizes, event check-in and refreshments, sport timers and monitors, health and safety personnel, and more.

All volunteers receive a T-shirt. However, most importantly, they receive the good feelings they get when they make a difference in other people’s lives by giving the gift of their time and contributing to healthy aging.

You will be inspired, motivated, and appreciated as a volunteer with Polk Senior Games. Participants are welcome to be volunteers in events other than where they are competing.  If you are 18 years and over and would like to help and be involved in a very special project, please call 863-533-0055 or email polkseniorgames@verizon.net for more information.
