Weekly Program Coordinators

We are currently seeking Weekly Program Coordinators for Spring Semester of 2015!

Weekly Programs:

The Office of Community Outreach has several weekly programs, each of which involves a group of students serving at a local agency for a few hours each week throughout the BW school year (except during BW breaks).  

Role of Weekly Program Coordinators:

Weekly Program Coordinators are responsible for all aspects of leading a weekly program at an established service site. Duties include serving as a liaison between OCO and the community partner, recruiting service participants, planning and facilitating reflection, and driving students to and from the service site (BW van provided). Weekly Program Coordinators will meet as a group 1-2 times per month (Tuesdays at 12:00 p.m.).  Like all OCO Team Members, Weekly Program Coordinators participate in monthly All-OCO Team meetings, retreats once per semester, and OCO special events such as Saturday of Service.


Positions Currently Available:


Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities (3:25-5:30 on Wednesdays or Thursdays)

The Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities provides a wide range of services to children and adults with developmental disabilities.  The Office of Community Outreach and the CCBDD have partnered for almost 15 years to provide opportunities for social interaction between BW students and adults from the Brooklyn Adult Activities Center.  They spend time together primarily on campus with occasional field trips.

In addition to the duties described above, the CCBDD Weekly Program Coordinator is responsible for planning and facilitating the weekly activities our BW and CCBDD friends do together.

Create your own Weekly Program (Time and Day of Week TBD)
