Become a Volunteer Travel Counselor

The Tourist Center welcomes and assists more than 20,000 visitor to Grand Prairie each year. Our volunteer travel counselors assist with directions, things to do in the area and primarily direct visitors to Grand Prairie attractions, hotels, restaurants, shopping, special events, etc.

Regular scheduled counselors work one specific four-hour shift each week. Each of those work shifts are currently filled, but "fill-in" positions are available (when permanent counselors are away), and a wait list is available for those interested in volunteering for a regular weekly shift.

Volunteers enjoy regular activities to network with other counselors and learn more about attractions and activities in the area, familiarization tours of hotels and attractions, pot luck dinners and just a fun environment.

If you would like to visit with travelers from all across the globe, can give directions and are proud to promote Grand Prairie as the exciting destination it is, contact Cathy Raymond  at 972-595-5402 or email

City volunteers are subject to background check and drug screening.
