BCA encourages students to take advantage of learning opportunities both in and beyond the classroom!
Here is a list of current volunteering opportunities:
- Making and having coffee and cake for/with the homeless
- Electronics, textiles, etc. repair work (this is a social event under the motto “repair it together instead of throwing it away lonely”)
- Providing sign language assistance to those with a hearing impairment
- Refugee assistance (anything from watching children to translating to sports activities)
- Social activities (shopping, swimming, going to a movie, etc.) with those who are deaf and/or blind
- Talking and spending time with senior citizens
We are working to establish new volunteer opportunities all the time, so please let us know when completing your application if you are interested in volunteering while studying abroad. Once on site, your resident director will work with you to find a placement that fits your schedule and your goals, as well as the organization’s needs. Our hope is that your volunteering experience will be mutually beneficial for both you and the organization! BCA’s expectation is that students take their volunteering commitment seriously and demonstrate this by faithful attendance and communication with their organization.
