Recreation Workers


The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment opportunities for recreation workers will increase by 8 percent through 2028, 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. As the baby-boom generation continues to age, the growing elderly population will create demand in nursing homes, senior centers, and retirement communities. There is also a demand for recreation workers to conduct activity programs for special needs groups.
