Career Videos >> Hospitality and Tourism >> Recreation Workers video

If you’ve ever played on a community softball team, or taken an aerobics class, you’ve probably encountered recreation workers who planned, organized and directed these activities. Their job is to make it possible for you to enjoy leisure activities like water sports or arts and crafts, in a safe and fun environment. Recreation workers supervise the facilities and equipment at local playgrounds, recreation parks, community centers, health clubs, camps and most tourist attractions. The job can be diverse and enjoyable, because the type of programs offered are only limited by the creativity of the recreation worker and the interest of the public. If you like to work with the public, lead programs and derive joy from enabling other people to share common interests and learn new activities, then this could be a gratifying career choice.
