  • Mission:
  • Brooklyn College Community Partnership (BCCP) is unique among youth development programs. Since 1994, our university-community partnership has been connecting Brooklyn’s young people, Brooklyn communities, and Brooklyn College. We are rooted in a conviction that all youth—no matter their race, ethnicity, socio-economic or academic status—should be provided knowledge about, and access to, higher education opportunities. We support marginalized young people’s academic and personal development, and make college a tangible reality for them.

    We reach these goals by genuinely engaging young people in experiential arts, leadership, and social-emotional programs, building real connections for them to the college campus, students, and faculty, and strengthening their self-confidence and the web of support around them. Founded by a developmental psychology professor, BCCP’s programs are relationship-based, responsive, and youth-centered. We offer programs on 7 school campuses (a total of 12 middle and high schools) and at our incredible Brooklyn College Arts Lab. Through our network model, we foster interaction between high school students, working artists, college students, and our youth development staff. Every new interaction is a potential catalyst for growth, spontaneous real-world learning, and generative collaboration. This is how we see the world, and this is how we support the whole, changing, growing student.

  • History:
  • Brooklyn College Community Partnership (BCCP) was founded in 1994 by a Brooklyn College psychology professor, as a community outreach program in response to a hate-crime incident. The original curriculum engaged local high school students in creative writing, self-expression and community-building—and engaged college students as mentors through service-learning work paired with a dedicated developmental psychology course. A separate entity from both the college and the public schools with which we work, BCCP is able to draw on the resources of both, while maintaining flexible, creative, and unique programming.

    In the past 16 years, we have built upon and expanded our original curriculum, and grown to have sites at 7 public school campuses, serving a total of 12 middle and high schools with after-school and day programming. Our staff of youth development professionals and working artists collaborate with service learning college students to provide college access, arts, and mentorship programming to our youth participants.

    While visits to the college campus have been an ongoing part of our work since the beginning, in 2005, we created the dynamic Brooklyn College Arts Lab, a youth-centered, arts-focused space on the college campus, with features that enable young people's movement and activity in the space and include a fully equipped computer lab, sound studio, private counseling room, small work areas for art projects and workshops, and a college resource center. The site was designed by young people, and the space feels positive, vibrant, and dynamic. The site helps young people feel welcome, confident, and comfortable on the college campus—normalizing higher education among students who have most likely not been encouraged, previously, by their schools and teachers to pursue a college degree.
