Volunteers are needed to help as a coach or assist with skill development. There will be a skills day and training on September 7 where participants and volunteers will get a chance to interact with each other.

Park Scorecard Project [Immediate Need]
The park scorecard project consists of going out to one or more of BREC parks and giving it a grade based on six specific components: cleanliness, accessibility, greenspaces, functionality, and amenities. Volunteers complete a digital survey, upload a few photos from the visit, and click submit; it's that simple. The purpose of this project is to get unbiased feedback on our parks. This is a great opportunity for persons college aged or affiliated with an organization or business that are looking to earn service hours. These surveys can be completed at any time at the convenience of the volunteer. We have over 180 parks so there are many to choose from. Parks are assigned by BREC's Volunteer Manager. For more information about this opportunity contact volunteer@brec.org.
