VOLUNTEER AT AUDREY MOORE RECenter
It is never too late to start following up on your new year's resolutions! Did you resolve to volunteer more, and give back to your community? Did you resolve to lose weight and get in shape? You can do both by volunteering here at Audrey Moore! We welcome new volunteers to help us in the fitness room, the front desk and outdoors at our park. Our volunteers are all ages, from young teens to our active seniors. This is a community RECenter and is a great place to see your friends and neighbors in classes and around the center. There is a strong sense of camaraderie with all of the staff here; both volunteers and paid employees. Think about coming to the RECenter and seeing what we have to offer you!
We are looking forward to all of the summer camps and the multitude of outdoor programs here at Audrey Moore and in Wakefield Park. Be sure to check out Parktakes Online or pick up a Parktakes magazine at our front desk. Sign up for something new to you. Expand your horizons. Try a boot camp out with our fitness department, OR put your child in our Kids Boot Camp! They will LOVE it. Walk the paths; see how beautiful it is even right next to the beltway. The volunteer opportunities expand to include outside clean-up so if you enjoy being outdoors this is a way to volunteer in the fresh air and sunshine.
Come try any one of our awesome drop in exercise classes or sign up for a fitness class. There is nothing more motivating than working out with friends.
Join the volunteer team at your neighborhood RECenter and get the insider’s edge on the latest developments!
