Barnard Reach Out

 

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.  

This year, we are pleased to provide the following volunteering opportunities.
