What does "We Rise Up" mean?
Park and recreation agencies across the country are one of the largest employers 15-21 year old's. This summer, Washtenaw County Parks has employed more than 250 young adults in important positions throughout our parks and facilities. Many of these are starting points for their future careers. For others, it’s their first job. We are grateful for our young people who say “We Rise Up for Parks and Recreation” by spending their summers working with us and we'll be recognizing their efforts throughout the month of July. Join us and @National Recreation and Park Association in celebrating them for #RiseUpJuly!
