Volunteer with us

Join the team and volunteer with the City of Killeen Recreation Services Department. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for ages 16 and up through our Animal Services Department, Parks & Recreation Department, Senior Centers and Recreation Department. Volunteers make a lasting impact on our community and contribute to the success of Recreation Services.
