BCCP works with over 1,500 young people at sites on 7 public school campuses (a total of 12 middle and high schools), and at our Brooklyn College Arts Lab (BCAL), located on the College campus.
Our school-based programs are available to students after-school and during free time for academic support, hands-on creative projects with working artists, college prep and impromptu counseling.
At BCAL, on the Brooklyn College Campus, 50-80 students per day from across our sites make the college campus their own, as they participate in after-school and weekend arts and technology workshops such as fashion design, electronic music, web design, filmmaking, yoga, and poetry.
BCAL is also the site for our signature college access program, The Brooklyn College Experience, in which students take a participatory research-based scavenger-hunt tour of the campus with cameras, participate in BCAL arts activities, and may meet with college admissions counselors, faculty and students. This program builds a crucial bridge to the college campus for BCCP students at all sites (including younger students and those at a greater geographic distance), and connects students from schools we do not currently partner with to BCCP programs.
