Corporate and Group Volunteering
BCS works with corporate groups, places of worship, universities, civic groups, and more. Our staff will work with you to make sure your volunteer experience is both meaningful for you, and makes a real difference in Brooklyn’s low-income neighborhoods.
- Green Thumbs in East New York: Weed and plant at our urban garden in East New York
- Be a Party Planner: Help host a holiday party for adults with intellectual disabilities
- Practice Makes Perfect: Build confidence by conducting mock interviews with adults re-entering the job market
- Reverse Job Fair: Help us expose students to different career options by answering questions about your career track
- Read by Example: Share your favorite book with a group of students in one of our Early Education Centers
- Wrapping Party: Help label and wrap toys donated for our Toy Drive
Capacity and Financial Support
Due to space restrictions, most group projects are limited to 25 volunteers at a time. We ask that our corporate volunteers help support our volunteer program financially.

Thank you to the New York Mets for partnering with BCS to provide 100 turkeys to the families at our Seth Low Cornerstone Community Center in Brownsville! Each family or individual receiving a turkey also received a Mets Giving tote bag and six Mets tickets for a home game in April.
Thank you to Liberty City for donating 50 bags of groceries to the families of our BCS Duffield Children’s Center! Families were surprised when they picked up their children to receive a donation of groceries in celebration of the holiday season.
