   In 1985, the Parkville Recreation and Parks Council, Inc. established the Parkville Recreation Council Youth Scholarship Fund.  The first scholarships were awarded in the spring of 1985, and will be awarded annually, provided sufficient donations are received to maintain the Scholarship Fund.  We are pleased to announce that this scholarship program will continue this year.

 These scholarships are designed for high school seniors from the Parkville community who will be attending college. In selecting the recipients, the Scholarship Committee will consider the following:

  • the academic performance of the applicant
  • the high school extra-curricular activity of the applicant
  • the applicant’s involvement in community activities
  • the applicant’s participation in programs of the Parkville Recreation and Parks Council
  • the applicant’s financial need

 The Scholarship Committee urges any high school senior planning to attend college, and who meets the criteria for this scholarship to apply as soon as possible.  Every eligible applicant will be given the utmost consideration, and we wish each of you the best of luck in the pursuit of a higher education.

Volunteer Information

Baltimore County Government is invested in increasing the safety of participants and families while they are participating in Recreation and Parks activities and programs.  We are extending our efforts to include conducting background investigations for all volunteers who participate in Recreation/Nature Council, Therapeutic, PAL., and other County-sponsored recreation programs.

The background investigation will be conducted by a nationally recognized security screening firm, SSCI.  This screening will include a review of each applicant's criminal history and the development of an investigative report.  The results of the investigation will determine each volunteer's eligibility to volunteer in our programs.  To protect the privacy of all volunteers in the program, Baltimore County staff will not have access to any detailed information regarding this background screening.  SSCI will only provide a list of passed applicants to Recreation and Parks staff.

This program is a preventive measure.  It is not meant to take the place of parental involvement and participation.  It is meant to work in partnership with parental efforts to ensure that their children and all constituents enjoy programs and activities in a safe environment.


Who must complete the background investigation:

  • Board of Recreation and Parks Members
  • Recreation/Nature Council Board Members
  • Recreation/Nature Council Chairpersons
  • Head and Assistant Coaches
  • Instructors and Assistant Instructors
  • Volunteers who have care, custody or control of children
  • Volunteers who have access to confidential information (example: registration forms, financial information)


Access the Volunteer Application by going to the following website www.baltimorecountymd.gov/recreationvolunteers

Access Code: BCGREC19

  • Complete the application and submit.
  • Volunteers must complete this process prior to each program season. 
  • There is no cost to applicants.
