The Barnard Reach Out Program for New Students ("BRO") is designed to give incoming Barnard students the opportunity to get involved with community service in the New York City area at the beginning of the semester. Or goal is that by becoming involved with such opportunities early on, new students will continue to give back to the community throughout their time at Barnard. BRO consists of a day-long service project either on Saturday, September 6, 2014 or Sunday, September 7, 2014. Each BRO group will be led by a Barnard staff and a current Barnard student.
Last year, over 140 students, faculty and administrators particiapted in September BRO, providing much-needed support for the following organizations: City Harvest; Citymeals-on-Wheels; Lower East Side Ecology Center; Rauschenbusch Metro Ministries; St. Mary's Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry; Chemo Comfort Kit-Making; Grow NYC; Housing Works; Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty; and Transportation Alternatives.
Registration for September 2014 BRO has not yet begun. Please continue to check this website for updates.
