To help expand horizons, create friendships and make a difference in Largo, Largo teens are encouraged to apply for the 2019-20 City of Largo Recreation, Parks & Arts Largo Teen Volunteer (LTV) Program.

LTV empowers middle and high school teenagers to become leaders and ambassadors of their community and work directly with Largo Recreation staff, while creating valuable life experiences, friendships and memories. Starting in September, the LTV program will unveil a revamped initiative that is service-based, rewarding and taps into teen interests.

Here are some of the highlights available to teen volunteers this year:

  • Posting on the official Largo Recreation (@playlargo) Instagram account during select recreation programs
  • Ability to earn two event tickets for family members for every 16 hours they put in
  • Teens who put in a minimum of 40 hours by the end of May 2020 receive a special night of celebration hosted by Largo Recreation

To apply, teens can visit PlayLargo.com/Teens and complete an online application, or visit Highland Recreation at 400 Highland Ave in Largo. LTV is held during the school year beginning in September and ends in May, with meetings on the second Monday of each month from 6-7pm at Highland Recreation. For more information, please contact Erika Lafontaine at elafonta@largo.com or call 727-587-6740 Ext. 5014.
