Indy Parks and Recreation is hiring for more than 200 summer job openings for youth ages 16 and older. The organization says available positions include lifeguards, day camp counselors, and food program coordinators.
Indy Parks says the positions start at $10-$15 per hour and will be located at parks offering day camps, pools, concerts and movies, free meals, and summer programs.
“When you work for our parks department, you are given a chance to make a meaningful and positive difference in our community while earning a paycheck,” said Mayor Hogsett. “We hope the best, brightest, and most hardworking residents of our city choose to apply. Over the challenges of the last year, few public amenities have been as beloved as our parks.”
Indy Parks says open summer pool locations for this summer will include:
- Bethel Park
- Indy Island/Raymond Park
- Brookside Park
- Krannert Park (outdoor)
- Frederick Douglass Park
- Northwestway Park
- Garfield Park
- Riverside Park
- Gustafson Park
- Thatcher Park
“Knowing how much swimming and access to pools means to our staff and park visitors, our team took time to evaluate health and safety measures, activities occurring at selected pool locations, and challenges with fully staffing pools alongside other summer job needs,” said Linda Broadfoot, Indy Parks director, noting that pool locations are finalized in March to get ready for the summer. “We are forging ahead to hire hardworking seasonal staff while delivering quality services at our pools, in day camps, and in park spaces around the city.”
