Villa Park Little League is a non-profit organization and is 100% volunteer run. There are no paid employees on the board or otherwise. All parents of children involved in Little League Baseball are strongly encouraged to volunteer. Each member of the Board of Directors has children and full-time jobs that demand our time, so we certainly understand the extra effort that it requires for you to show up and volunteer. We do not take your contribution lightly and we really couldn't do it without you.
As a parent, volunteer, you have the opportunity to spend quality time with your child in a safe, fun-filled environment. Oftentimes, parent and child social lives parallel each other. Volunteering allows your life and your child's life to intersect on common ground, with shared interests and goals.
Who Can Volunteer?
Anyone can apply to become a volunteer. Whatever talents or skills you have, we can use them! Across the country, volunteers are grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, retirees, community leaders, former Little Leaguers, friends, neighbors, and more. Any community member who wishes to become a volunteer may apply.
What Can I Volunteer To Do?
No experience is required to become a volunteer. Most of the volunteer opportunities require little or no training. VPLL will provide you with any necessary training (as well as support and encouragement). The best volunteers are those who are able to bring added enjoyment to the game simply be being themselves. What you see during Little League games is a mere fraction of what you can do as a volunteer.

Little League International Requirements
Little League International requires background checks for those adults who are closely interacting with our kids. Currently, Little League is required to have all board members, managers, coaches, and other volunteers or hired workers who provide regular service to the league or/and who have repetitive access to or contact with players or teams to have completed a background check before they perform services for the league.
How Else Can I Help?
Sponsors: We are looking for large corporate sponsors, small business sponsors, and anyone who is willing to invest in the future of our fields and players.
Donations: No amount is too big or too small. As a non-profit organization here solely for the children of our community, we would graciously accept a donation, in any amount, to help us fund this multi-year improvement plan.
