Community Service

In 2015 Brandeis University was ranked #1 by the Princeton Review for student involvement in community service. In true Brandeis form, BNC Boston aims to give back to our various communities and neighborhoods.

The Second Step

The Second Step, founded in 1992, is a transitional living program for survivors of domestic violence. They provide more services, give survivors more time, and more choices than other similar programs. These include emotional and legal assistance, aid in finding long-term affordable housing and gaining economic independence. Unlike emergency shelters, families are allowed to stay for two years while they get their footing and begin a new life. Many of these survivors left with nothing and are in great need of certain products. We collect and donate toiletries and cleaning supplies such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, laundry detergent, deodorant, etc. We also donate school supplies and diapers (size 1+) to help them support children brought into the program. These school supplies include pencils, crayons, pens, scissors, markers, drawing paper etc.

The Second Step has been locally and nationally recognized for the high quality of its programs and services. Please be generous and help these women and families in need.

The Jewish Coalition for Literacy

For more than fifteen years BNC Boston has partnered with the Jewish Coalition for Literacy. Through this involvement, we provide volunteer tutors to the J.P. Manning School, a pre-K to 5th grade school, in Jamaica Plain. As a tutor you would assist with developing reading and language skills. A teaching background is not necessary to be a tutor, but we do require at least a two hour weekly commitment to the teacher and to the child to whom you are assigned. When you join this cadre of dedicated tutors we will do our best to honor your requested day and time at Manning.
