<p>BREC stands for The Recreation and Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge. Our Outdoor Outreach program is called BREC Out! and it is designed with the fundamental purpose of providing educational and recreational programming in a hands-on, outdoor setting using methods and styles that promote and encourage higher level thinking and character development. BREC Out! targets audiences that are at-risk with long-term results obtained through recurring interaction and mentoring from staff. The goal is to enhance self-esteem, to foster mental and physical development and improvement through guidance and instruction, and to develop the many characteristics associated with civic-mindedness and environmental stewardship.</p>
