The spirit of volunteerism and philanthropy is at the heart of Centennial Olympic Park. Created as a gathering spot for the world during Atlanta’s Summer Olympic Games in 1996, this 21-acre urban oasis is the capital city’s lasting legacy of the Games, which brought international acclaim to the Peach State.
Did you know that you can play a vital role in preserving this legacy and ensuring that guests continue to make memorable visits to the park?
How? By offering your time and talents as a Centennial Olympic Park volunteer.
According to researchers, besides the gratifying feeling of helping others, volunteering can also improve your physical and mental health.
Although the park is being upgraded with several transformative projects – it’s still open to the public and volunteers are needed now more than ever.
Maybe you’re part of a civic, educational or social organization that is searching for a service project to participate in. Perhaps your business or corporation is exploring ways to give back to the community. Centennial Olympic Park’s volunteer program can help fulfill those missions.
Volunteer opportunities at Centennial Olympic Park are available seven days a week. Hours are flexible and can be tailored to your – or your group’s – schedule.
Volunteer assignments include, but are not limited to, working as an information desk attendant at the park’s Visitor Center, being an event ambassador, and various landscaping beautification projects (from planting shrubbery to weeding and mulching).

” It is extremely rewarding for me to work with individuals who give of themselves so selflessly. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with our volunteers as the Park transforms into a renovated destination for our many visitors,” Jennifer Tinker, Volunteer Coordinator.
