Volunteer BREC March
Inclusive Sports Leagues
Our inclusive sports leagues are back and better than ever! Adults and children of all abilities who want to try a new activity in a non-competitive environment will be granted a chance to do so. Sports include softball, pitch, and t-ball. Volunteers are needed to assist with coaching and game day activities. Volunteers ages 14+ are encouraged to help. Join us and The Arc of Baton Rouge for skills training on March 9th. For more information contact volunteer@brec.org.


Sunset Paddle
Sunset Paddle is and Outdoor Adventure program that allows youth and adults with little or abundant watercraft skills to explore paddling into the beautiful south Louisiana sunset. Volunteers are needed to assist with outfitting participants, registration, event set-up and take down, and assisting participants in and out of kayaks.
This program will take place twice a month April - August. Four volunteers are needed for each month. We strongly prefer if the same four volunteers assist on both dates of each month. This is a good opportunity for a group or organization to participate in. For more information and additional dates contact volunteer@brec.org.
