Volunteer Application

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others"


Volunteers and parents of volunteers agreeing to participation in volunteer activities must recognize and appreciate that there are always inherent risks of injury associated with any volunteer activities.  Such risks will vary depending upon the nature of the particular volunteer activity.  Please recognize that the Western Springs Park District does not carry medical/accident insurance for injuries sustained in its volunteer programs.  It should be further recognized that the absence of medical/accident insurance does not make the Western Springs Park District responsible for the payment or reimbursement of medical expenses.  Therefore, each person participating in volunteer activities, and/or parents, should review their own health insurance policy for coverage.


As a volunteer, I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of physical injury to volunteers in this program/activity, and I voluntarily agree to assume the full risk of any and all injuries, damages or loss, regardless of severity, that I may sustain as a result of said participation.  I further agree to waive and relinquish all claims I may have (or accrue to me) as a result of volunteering in this program/activity against the Western Springs Park District, including its officers, officials, agents, volunteers and employees.
