Volunteer Opportunities

The Town of Mead has multiple volunteer opportunities throughout the year for both recreation and events. It's a great opportunity for families, adults, and teens seeking volunteer or community service hours.


Year after year, hundreds of volunteers lend their time and energy to help us make Mead a better place for all. The Town of Mead offers several special events that volunteers may be involved in for varying time commitments. Please note that all volunteers must be 15 years of age or older.  To learn more about volunteer opportunities for special events contact lnelson [at] townofmead.org (Mead Recreation)

Event Needs: setup and decorating, vendor set up and support, games, Town booth, parade lineup, parade traffic assistance, & clean up


Make a difference in a life of a child and volunteer to coach. Our goal is to develop a foundation based on support, encouragement, and skill development. Coaches will receive training and materials so that even the first-time coach will be ready to get out on the field. The skills and techniques you will receive are age appropriate. We will help you apply those techniques to make sure you and your players have a satisfying experience. All volunteer head coaches are required to pass a background check and complete concussion training. Volunteer coaches (new or returning) must register for each sport that they would like to coach.

Coaching Expectations:

  • Must submit a Head Coach Application.
  • Must submit and pass a Background Check. Background Checks are valid for one year.
  • Must complete the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) concussion prevention training or equivalent. Concussion prevention training is valid for one year.
  • Must attend the preseason coaches’ meeting for their respective league or send a proxy in their place.
  • Attend a minimum of 75% of all meetings, practices, and scheduled games.

Time commitment: 

Practice is one or two day per week for one hour, with games on Saturdays for an hour. Practice days, times, and locations are selected by coaches on a first come/ first serve basis. Coaches will only be assigned once the application, background check, and concussion training are complete
