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.
Registered volunteers who contribute 30 or more hours during a tax year qualify for a $500 Louisiana State Income Tax deduction.

Park Beautification Projects
BREC relies on volunteers to maintain our parks and keep them safe for all residents to enjoy. BREC’s park beautification projects provide the perfect opportunity to get outside. Come enjoy the outdoors while volunteering with your school, church, corporate or community service group. We hope to have your students, staff, faculty and community members join us at one of our parks or facilities.
