Collaborative Education engages public school middle and high school students, community based groups and Bronx Community College students. Over the last few years, the role of Collaborative Education has increasingly expanded from direct student service activities to supporting local school, campus-based and community initiatives.
The BCC Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) completed the first year of its five year, $875,000 New York State Department of Education grant.

Science and Technology Entry Program Pre-College
STEP operates the Summer five-week Program and its Fall/Spring Saturday Program. Over 150 middle and high school students participate from more than 15 local schools. Both the summer and school year programs provide academic and social development and curricula that support science and technology learning focused on mathematics, robotics/drones, social media applications and chemistry.
African Services Project
In 2009, BCC Collaborative Education has implemented the BCC African Services Project. In collaboration with the Lehman College Social Work Department, social work interns provide individual counseling, service referrals and workshops to BCC’s growing West African student population. The Bronx has the largest African community in the United States. Approximately 10% of the BCC student population is from West Africa.
