The D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) Human Resources Division announced Monday the launch of the department's summer hiring application period.

The application, which can also be found on the DPR Summer Employment page, will remain open through the summer. Applications will be accepted through the entire summer.

DPR is offering employment opportunities for positions in its aquatics, camps, operations and administrative departments:

• Aquatics staff will have the opportunity to be pool managers, assistant pool managers, lifeguards and customer service representatives.

• Camps staff will have the opportunity to be facilitators, assistant facilitators, counselors, activity specialists and more.

• Operations staff will have the opportunity to be warehouse facilitators, drivers, assistants and more.

• Administrative staff will have the opportunity to work as associates in a few of the divisions at DPR's Central Office. (Please note, these positions are in an office environment and professional attire is required.)

These positions are covered under D.C. Law 15-353, the Child and Youth, Safety and Health Omnibus Amendment Act of 2004, effective April 13, 2005, as amended. Subsequently, all selected candidates for hire will be subject to criminal background checks, traffic record checks, or both, and pre-employment drug and alcohol screening. Additional information regarding these requirements will be available at each of our recruitment fairs as well as during our new hire orientations.

Please note that the DPR Summer Hire application is not the same at the Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) application or DPR's full time employment opportunities.
