ONE Brooklyn Campus Fellowship Program: Apply Now!
BCS has launched the ONE Brooklyn Campus Fellowship Program, a platform to mobilize college students through volunteer service, to effect change for Brooklyn residents living in underserved communities.
The Fellows Program is designed to both give a select group of Brooklyn college students the opportunity to make a difference in Brooklyn and help these students grow into effective leaders in their communities. With the guidance of BCS staff, the Fellows will create and put into practice 70 hours (or more) of community service. College students living in or attending college in Brooklyn are encouraged to apply!
Examples of community service activities students may pursue:
- Volunteer to help students at an after-school program with their homework
- Volunteer to help with mental illnesses or disabilities learn computer skills
- Plan a Holiday Party for a BCS program
- Organize a street cleanup in your neighborhood
- Organize a book drive, toy drive or back-to-school supplies drive
- Attend a street festival, rally or tabling event to advocate for ONE Brooklyn Community
