Park Ambassadors

The Bettendorf Parks and Recreation Department is looking for individuals to volunteer as Park Ambassadors. The Park Ambassadors are volunteers who patrol city parks and offer assistance to park visitors. Duties include giving directions, providing information on park activities, watch for vandalism, encouraging users to follow park rules, and serving as an extra set of eyes and ears for the Bettendorf Police Department. Most importantly, they act as goodwill ambassadors for the City.

The 2018 season will run from May 25 through September 3. There will be an orientation meeting on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at the Bettendorf Community Center, 2204 Grant Street. New ambassadors will attend from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and returning ambassadors will attend from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Anyone over the age of 18 can serve as an ambassador. Applicants do not have to be a Bettendorf resident, but must have a valid driver’s license, pass a background check, and be in good health.

Applications can be picked up at Bettendorf City Hall, 1609 State Street, Herbert D. Goettsch Community Center, 2204 Grant Street, or the Life Fitness Center, 2222 Middle Road.

Applications deadline is May 1 and can be dropped off at any of these locations.

Questions can be directed to Isaac Jacobs at 563-344-7170.
