More than 500 Brown University students participate in the Community Corps program. Students in this program lead after-school enrichment, connect health resources to patients, engage with adult learners, provide one-on-one tutoring, assist classroom teachers, support and advocate for people who are homeless and engage in other ways. Strong, long-term relationships between the Swearer Center, Brown University students, and community partner organizations are an essential component of this program.
Through this program, students join a cohort of engaged individuals and build on their skills, knowledge, and experience as they address issues of social injustice and inequality. While engaging in meaningful community engagement, students learn first-hand about the assets and strengths of the Providence community and our community partner organizations. Through meaningful community partnerships, these students contribute to the programmatic capacity of our partners and help make an impact on creating a more just and equal society. Through our co-curricular workshop series, students in Community Corps have access to a learning community of students who are engaged in thinking about the connections between community work, active citizenship, social justice, and academic learning. To learn more about Community Corps see our Community Corps handbook.
Note that funds for this program are limited and are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Students not accepted are during the summer are encouraged to apply for OCFWS program during the academic year.
