The BRC Impact Scholar Program

Help make an impact on the lives of people in need.

BRC – New York City’s largest nonprofit organization providing caring and effective services and housing to homeless and vulnerable New Yorkers – is seeking motivated and community-minded students to join its Impact Scholar program.

BRC’s Impact Scholar program is a full-day of service learning, where students - we call Impact Scholars - will receive a thorough introduction on homelessness, innovation, and how help build a more compassionate New York City by making an impact on the lives of people in need.

  • Presentation and conversation with a member of BRC’s executive leadership to learn about the causes and impact of homelessness
  • Guided tour of BRC programs
  • Custom “BRC Volunteer” t-shirt
