Volunteer at Spring Hill RECenter

The Presidents Volunteer Service Award Our volunteer program is an award-winner on the local, national and global level. Spring Hill was the first RECenter to partner with the Jane Goodall Institute's internationally acclaimed Roots & Shoots Jr. Volunteer Program. Our Roots & Shoots was selected as Volunteer Fairfax’s 2008 Youth Volunteer Group of the Year and was awarded the Park Authority’s Elly Doyle Park Service Award for Student Recognition. Spring Hill is also the first Park Authority RECenter to be declared an Official Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award. In addition, Spring Hill's Volunteer program has received recognition from USA Today's Weekend Magazine's National Make A Difference Day, Jane Goodall Institute, National Environmental Education Foundation, Character Counts! and DC Greenfest. If you are looking for the chance to make a difference, please consider joining our award-winning team.

HIGHLIGHTS...

Marie Duval, French volunteer from Au Pair in America.

Marie is absolutely without a doubt the grrrreatest kid on the planet! She has truly been a great all around volunteer and a stellar representation of how valuable our Au Pair Volunteers are to Spring Hill's Operations. She is a brilliant kid, fluent in English with her Master's degree in International affairs.

Marie's year stay here is up and she is leaving to go home. She wanted to go to an American baseball game before she left and being the die-hard Yankees fan that I am, I took her to a Yankees game on Tuesday and we had the best time as the photo reflects from outside where we ate dinner in Little Italy.

Marie will be SoOoOoO missed; I can't begin to tell you how our staff will miss her weekly presence at Spring Hill. She does it all...from helping to keeping all the machines in the Fitness Room clean, to sanitizing all the equipment in the Dance Studio & Wellness Studio, organizing the lost & found, cleaning out all the lockers in the ladies locker room, collecting the quarters each week from the Ladies Room lockers, transformed the pool deck stainless steel by working to remove the normal rust and mineral deposits that build up over time, helping with so many aspects of landscaping around the grounds and beyond.

Marie is a genuine Rock Star Volunteer and we feel so incredibly blessed to have this wonderful partnership with our Au Pair agencies that refer their incredible staff to volunteer at our RECenter.

Marie has been the total package that showcases how volunteers truly Power our Parks.

Jaque Ristau

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

Jaque Ristau
Spring Hill RECenter’s
2013 Outstanding Volunteer
of the Year

Jaque, an au-pair from Brazil, has been a phenomenal volunteer by her mere presence on our park grounds. Jaque's fun loving and hard-working nature is a Volunteer Manager's dream come true. From running the aquatic registration check-in table on the first day of classes; to endless landscaping of park grounds, wrapping packages for the agency's holiday "Adopt a Family," maintaining fitness equipment and making the entire RECenter's stainless steel glisten, Jaque embodies the term "Rock Star Volunteer."

Jaque has contributed in excess of 500 volunteer hours in 2013. Spring Hill customers have benefited in every aspect of her daily practice of the "Six Pillars of Character Counts." A program that we model at Spring Hill, representing citizenship, responsibility, trustworthiness, caring, fairness and respect. Congratulations Jaque on a well-deserved award!
