Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
Are you exceptionally outgoing and friendly? Are you able to jump right in and engage folks in conversation? Do you have a hobby or passion that you'd like to share that might transfer well into a virtual environment? If so, our residents and staff can definitely use your enthusiasm! BRC is looking for fun and friendly volunteers that can host weekly activities such as Bingo, creative writing, poetry "slams ", yoga & exercise, and so much more! Socialization is a crucial component of our clients' therapy, allowing them to fluidly readjust to daily living, gaining the ability to communicate effectively, and allowing them the confidence to express their thoughts and ideas. You can help in this capacity simply by coordinating and facilitating a fun activity or program.
Volunteers must have access to a computer or laptop equipped with internet access, as well as a microphone, camera, and Zoom. Due to the unique needs of the men and women we serve, volunteers must be at least 18 years of age or older to participate.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to ensure the integrity of the BRC volunteer program, as well as the well being of the clients we service, all interested parties must complete a New Volunteer Registration form and attend an orientation, prior to receiving an assignment.

Helping people reclaim lives lost: We restore hope and dignity by offering opportunities for health and self-sufficiency.
BRC: Helping People to Reclaim Lives Lost . BRC is a leading provider of housing and services to thousands of New York City's neediest individuals. Offering a hand up, not a hand out, BRC asks one simple question: What can we do for you? BRC sees the potential in each individual it serves, and provides each the opportunity to find it. Whatever our clients may seek, BRC has it, 24/7/365: outreach to homeless people living in public spaces, drug treatment, mental health care, comprehensive medical services, vocational services, and supportive communities in which to live. BRC succeeds by building trust with the people we serve; listening, and then acting, providing housing - both temporary and permanent. Building trust takes time, and a compassionate, dedicated staff of almost 1,000 employees and 1,000+ volunteers that persevere 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, never giving up.
