RISE Youth Leadership Program is Now a Year-Round Opportunity!

Applications for the Realizing Interests through Service Experience (RISE) leadership program are now being accepted year-round. Teens above the age of 14 in the RISE program are provided an introduction to volunteering with the park district and coached in safety, volunteer expectations, customer service, and more. They gain valuable work experience, earn school community service requirements, and have lots of fun!

We are currently only able to offer RISE opportunities at district events, but we hope to expand the program to include summer camps, after-school programs, and more as COVID restrictions ease. 

Applicants must commit to a minimum of 50 hours of service during the year. If you are interested in more information or would like to apply, visit the THPRD Youth Opportunities webpage.

Updated Face Covering Guidance at THPRD

Indoors:

THPRD requires masks or face coverings to be worn indoors at our facilities, unless:

  • Individuals are participating in an activity that makes it difficult to do so (i.e. swimming, showering, etc).
  • The patron is fully vaccinated (2 weeks from last vaccination date) and vaccination status has been verified by THPRD staff using the procedure outlined below.

Individuals who provide proof of vaccination will be permitted to use the indoor facility and participate in programs without a mask or face covering and do not need to maintain physical distancing. THPRD staff must verify proof of vaccination before a person can remove a face covering. 

Those who do not wish to show proof of vaccination or who are not vaccinated will be required to wear a mask or face covering and maintain physical distancing in THPRD facilities.

Outdoors:

Effective immediately, face coverings are not required to be worn outdoors on THPRD property. Face coverings are also not required by THPRD to be worn when playing or viewing outdoor sports. However, user groups are authorized to set greater restrictions for their participants.  Per state guidance, face coverings are still strongly recommended for unvaccinated or vulnerable populations.For more information or frequently asked questions, visit our website at thprd.org.
