Our Mission: To become a justice-centered school community who fuels the unique genius of each student.
Our Vision: Brooklyn Center Community Schools endeavors
to be a collective who demonstrates passion,
pride and perseverance.
We will fiercely lead the way in justice-centered
education, striving against the permanence of
racism and oppressive systems while embracing
a future where our diversity fuels learning.
With every breath in our bodies, every ounce
of influence we possess, and through every
challenge, we stand front and center with the
young people we love and serve.
As the only full-service Community School district in Minnesota, Brooklyn Center Community Schools (BCCS) has an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement, which leads to improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities. The school acts as the hub of the community, and has over 100 community partners and programs, providing supports such as out-of-school-time programs; immigration and refugee services; community engagement opportunities; and the onsite Brooklyn Center Health Resource Center (HRC), a community clinic providing free & low cost health services for young people.
This Spring Break 20 Brooklyn Center High School Juniors and Seniors will be traveling to Washington D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland on a Historically Black College and University Tour. Students will tour HBCU schools, visit important historical sites and learn about black history while in community with each other. The goal of this trip is to fully engage students in parts of their history that they are not fully exposed to in school-- and to have fun while doing so!
We are looking for individuals who are interested in helping sponsor our young and passionate scholars on their trip.
A $15 contribution covers a warm meal for a BC student while on their trip.
A $45 gift would fund a scholar's museum admission fee.
$100 covers one night of hotel lodging for 2 students.
$300 covers the cost of roundtrip airfare for a scholar.
$1,000 provides 20 young scholars with ground transportation to historical sites for one day.
Collectively, we are trying to raise $30,000 to cover the cost of our trip. Thank you for your generosity and investing in our scholars! #SendBCtoDC
