City of Grand Prairie- Volunteer Services



1. The Epic REQUIRED Volunteer Orientation

The Epic is re-imagining recreation in America and we want you to join the fun! The Epic is looking for individuals who want to be a part of all that is Epic.

We seek volunteers to provide support in a variety of roles:

  • Concierge Desk- serve as a greeter to guests and members entering the facility, and provide tours for prospective members.

  • Fine Arts & Music- serve as an usher or green room host to assist performers and celebrity chefs.

  • KidsPlay- assist in our KidsPlay babysitting area during parent/ guardian play hours. 

  • Epic Radio- radio DJ, on-air personality, or behind-the-scenes producer or engineer! We would love community members to curate their own styles of music for online radio play, record podcasts or just sit down for a talk-show. 

**Volunteers must first register for volunteer orientation before signing up for shifts and times**
