Recreation Workers

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment opportunities for recreation workers will increase by 10 percent through 2024, or faster than the average for all occupations. The expected expansion in the recreation field will result from increased leisure time and income for the population as a whole, along with a continuing interest in fitness and health and a growing elderly population in nursing homes, senior centers, and retirement communities. There is also a demand for recreation workers to conduct activity programs for special needs groups.
