Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA) is THE place for engaging community-based social & recreational programs for children, teens, and adults with special needs. WDSRA brings you fun, exciting programs put together by expert staff dedicated to making sure every experience is a positive one. They offer creative, innovative programming with opportunities to create social groups and make friends.

Western DuPage Special Recreation Association Programs – both virtual and in-person – are designed similar to traditional park district programs. There is something for every interest including competitive and recreational athletics, Special Olympics, adaptive sports, music, dance, art, theater, social clubs, camps, trips, special events, and more!

Through Inclusion Services, they offer assistance to any individual with a disability who registers for a park district program from any of their member districts. Assistance varies depending on the needs of the individual and can range from adapting materials to sending support staff. There is no additional cost for participants to receive inclusion services.

Whether looking for your first job, supplementing another job or making this your primary employment, WDSRA has what you are looking for. If you are enthusiastic, caring, dedicated and like to enjoy what you do, we want YOU. They offer flexible schedules, training, and exciting programs. It’s the most fun you can have in a job!
