ONE BK Action is our volunteer program that engages nearly 1,000 volunteers each year. BCS works to create powerful volunteer partnerships with hundreds of individuals, community organizations, the faith-based community, local businesses and corporations who share our vision of ONE Brooklyn Community.
ONE BK Action is driven by the strength of social responsibility. In partnership with the community, we are making a major impact to empower people who have limited resources and are faced with pressing needs.
BCS sees the needs of Brooklynites living in underserved neighborhoods every day. We’ve been on the frontline serving poor and low-income people in Brooklyn since our founding 150 years ago. And while there has been progress, today, 23% of Brooklynites still live in poverty.
We are calling on Brooklynites who share our vision for ONE Brooklyn Community to partner with BCS and help change the math for the 23% of Brooklynites living in poverty. You can make an impact by becoming a BCS volunteer.
ONE BK Action Monthly Information Sessions for New Volunteers
On the 2nd Wednesday of every month, we host the ONE BK Action Info Session, which is a monthly information session for new volunteers. It takes place from 5:30- 6:30 pm, at BCS headquarters, 285 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn.
The program starts promptly at 5:30 pm and concludes at 6:30 pm. Our staff will introduce you to BCS’s comprehensive range of services, volunteer needs and upcoming volunteer events. Our volunteer coordinators will help you find an opportunity to get involved by “matching” you with one of our programs. Please note, some of our programs require a background check and fingerprinting before you can start volunteering.
To contact us, please e-mail volunteer@WeAreBCS.org.
Spring into Action is our signature volunteer initiative at the start of every Spring, which has galvanized hundreds of volunteers to give back in low-income communities.
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!
