Volunteer with BREC
Are you looking to give back to your community? BREC needs volunteers to fulfill our mission of providing parks and recreational opportunities for all of the residents of East Baton Rouge Parish. With a range of facilities and programs, BREC has a volunteer opportunity for everyone.
BREC is committed to providing our program participants with credentialed volunteers. As a result, we require volunteers to fill out an application and consent to a background screening. BREC does not provide volunteer opportunities to court-appointed community service or service for a pre-trial intervention program.
