If you are interested in being a volunteer for Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD), we would love to have your help! Some youth coach and official positions are paid positions, but some folks choose to volunteer for them as well. Please know that some volunteer positions require that you fill out a BPRD volunteer application and that you may be subject to a background check.
