WHY JOIN US?
To engage in multidisciplinary projects, learn a foreign language and explore the cultures, economic, political and social structures of another country, firsthand is an experience that only few have enjoyed Our projects provide the incubators needed to engage in practical acts of service that teaches principles of relationship building, servant leadership, collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving that cannot be fully developed in the traditional classroom. What better way to do that than through engaging in a collaborative project that is designed to improve the lives of others. With BC2, youth have that experience.
Doing nothing for others is the undoing of ourselves.”
― Horace Mann
From now on, any definition of a successful life must include serving others~ George Bush

Learn to Serve---- Serve to Learn...
“As a teenager, I had to learn how to serve-be kind, not condescending, patient, loving and available... Now as an adult, I serve in order to learn, Serving has afforded me the opportunity to gain new perspectives, to explore unfamiliar solutions, to appreciate cultural differences, to see a bigger picture and to think globally".-

Your educational experience cannot be limited to the classroom.
It must also take place beyond the classroom within
communities and across cultures both locally and globally-
across national and international borders providing you with

collaborate with community memebers to develop solutions.
Every child should have access to a diverse learning experience. Youth are invited to join a team or schools can contact BC2 to create a collaborative team! Do it TODAY!
