Volunteers can be found in many different roles throughout the Park System.

The Monmouth County Park System requires that all volunteers be 18 years of age or older. Junior Volunteers, ages 14-17, must be supervised by a parent, legal guardian or an authorized park employee. In some situations, it may be desirable or necessary for the Park System to place a child volunteer, age 13 or younger (i.e. at a theater performance or family life demonstration at a farm/historic site). Under those circumstances, a parent or legal guardian must provide direct on-site supervision.

Children, ages 13 and younger, who volunteer as a group (i.e. Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, church organizations) for a one-time activity (i.e. clean-up, planting) may volunteer without their parents, provided there is a ratio of one adult for every seven children. Teens, ages 14-17, who volunteer as a group must have a ratio of one adult for every ten volunteers. These exceptions each require a parental consent/release form for every child.
