BI Filler Photo-01The Berkeley City College Service Community (BCCSC) connects UC Berkeley students with community college students in a leadership development program that promotes civic engagement. Community College is the fastest growing path in pursuing a degree in higher education. A major challenge for community colleges is in providing an active “college experience,” due to low levels of student engagement opportunities. With low funding of core operations in registration, enrollment, and orientation, many community college students have limited opportunities to become involved in internships, volunteer opportunities, and other career paths. BCCSC will connect Berkeley City College students to their campus and assist in easing their transition into four-year universities.
