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.

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!
