THPRD Volunteers!

Volunteer with Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District!

At THPRD, we believe through volunteerism, we will make our community a better place to work and play. Each year, volunteer coaches, lifeguards, natural area restoration volunteers, therapeutic aides for seniors and physically challenged individuals, day-care attendants, special event volunteers and many others, make it possible for citizens of all abilities and ages to participate in activities.

Featured Volunteer: Mitzi Pulido Tetuan

After two years of Jr. Lifeguarding, Mitzi has recently started a new volunteer position with the Aloha Swim Center: Bilingual Front Desk Assistant. She volunteers at the front desk providing assistance to the office tech and other front desk personnel. Mitzi is bilingual and she uses her Spanish skills to help patrons in-person and over the phone.

Her favorite part about volunteering and using her Spanish skills is being able to create a more comfortable environment for patrons who may not speak English or prefer speaking Spanish. She lives in our park district and sees the diversity in our area every day. She moved to the United States when she was four years old and started to learn English. She also started taking THPRD swim lessons and gymnastics classes at the same time. She knows firsthand what it is like to participate in park and recreation activities with the challenge of a language barrier.

Mitzi has been involved with THPRD for ten years in one capacity or another and is very proud of the services we provide and her involvement with our community outreach. She hopes to continue with THPRD in more roles. Currently, she splits her free time between Leadership after-school (she goes to School of Science and Technology in Beaverton), Varsity swim team, and Young Entrepreneurs Academy through the Beaverton Chamber of Commerce. Mitzi has a bright future ahead of her, and we are lucky to have her help us in any capacity.

THPRD is always looking for bilingual volunteers to help us deliver superb customer service to our patrons. If you are interested in helping us with this, please contact volunteer services at volunteer@thprd.org or 503/645-6433.
