There are a few specific ways that your organization can get involved in the Barnard community:
Organizations can benefit from the skills and perspectives that Barnard women bring to the workplace. Over 1500 Barnard students intern at various locations throughout the world, engaging in multifaceted ways to learn and specific fields of interest. Please feel free to post any internship opportunities available to Barnard students through NACElink (please see below).
We plan specific service opportunities that fit with other programs offered through NYCCEP and our students are always looking for volunteer opportunities around New York City. Please feel free to post any community service and volunteer opportunities available to Barnard students through NACElink (please see below). Please take a look at Barnard College's Service Portfolio, prepared for Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s NYC Service Office’s College Challenge initiative in Spring 2010, to learn more about the various service-related initiatves at Barnard. Please note that Barnard College is also a Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award.
The Barnard Career Development office may be able to work with you if your organization is interested in hosting an information session on Barnard’s campus. Please contact Valerie Chow (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
NACElink is Barnard’s database for matching students with prospective volunteer sites and internship sites. Register your organization and post volunteer, intern, or employment opportunities.
Organizations and students alike can benefit from the relationships formed between Barnard’s faculty members and their community. Whether students in an architecture design studio use a city park as a seminar project, or Urban Studies majors collaborate with supportive housing organizations in designing new programs, or English majors work with housing organizations to understand the concept of “home” and apply this to literature, organizations profit from the student learning process.
