As part of the volunteer application, volunteers create an account in the Recreation and Parks volunteer database. Volunteers logged into their volunteer record have easy access to see their active volunteer assignment(s), review their recorded service history, and update their profile/emergency contact information. 

Recent Volunteer Program applicants can log in to see their application status, and can always check in with the LA Rec & Parks staff they are working with, to learn more about their application process.
