Brooklyn College Community Partnership

Hive NYC member since January 2013

Created in the early 1990s in response to racial conflicts in Brooklyn, BCCP builds bridges Brooklyn communities to Brooklyn College. Relationship-based programs engage young people through arts and technology and support academic and personal development to make college a tangible reality. Through a unique network model BCCP connects Brooklyn youth to college students and faculty who serve as educators and mentors, to peers from geographically and culturally disparate communities and to dedicated staff who are positive role models of academic and professional success. BCCP's mission is to make college accessible to underserved youth.
