MLK Day Barnard Reach Out (BRO)

Barnard Reach Out (BRO) & The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Of Service

Sponsored by the New York City Civic Engagement Program (NYCCEP) and co-sponsored by Barnard's Student Life/Constellations Program, Barnard Reach Out (BRO) places groups of Barnard College students at various sites throughout New York City for a day of service. BRO is designed to give all Barnard students the opportunity to become involved with community service in the New York City area.  We hope that by becoming involved with such opportunities, students will continue to give back to the community throughout their time at Barnard.  

In honor of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, MLK Day BRO will send students to volunteer at various locations on Monday, January 20, 2014.  MLK Day BRO is designed to offer students with additional opportunities to volunteer with local organizations, all while channeling the spirit of Dr. King's legacy of sacrifice, collaboration, and helping others.

Following the MLK Day of Service, NYCCEP will host a series of events to provide Barnard students with opportunities to explore longer-term community-oriented projects.  More information about those events will soon follow.
