Bruins Give Back
Bruins Give Back (BGB) takes place three times each semester and is available for all members of the KCC community to participate. This program is a collaborative program with Student Life, Service Learning and HandsOn Battle Creek. The Bruins Give Back events occur at locations around Battle Creek. More details about Bruins Give Back will be announced as we get closer to each BGB. Registration opens 2 weeks before each date.
BGB takes place from 9am-12pm

At each site there are student leaders that serve as site leaders. These site leaders are there to connect with the community partner, welcome volunteers, serve alongside volunteers, lead a reflection activity and assist with evaluating the program. Contact Kate DeGraaf at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in service as a site leader.
Volunteer and Civic Engagement Fair
Next Fair will take place in September 2016.
Each semester KCC puts this fair on for students and community members. The next fair will take place in September.
Are you looking for ways to volunteer this year? Are you in a service-learning course but aren’t sure where to get connected? This event is a great opportunity for KCC students interested in service-learning and community service. At the fair you will have the chance to learn about the work and mission of many organizations and about various needs in the Battle Creek community. At least 20 area organizations will be represented at the event.
If you are a community partner that would like to be part of this event but haven’t received any emails about past Volunteer and Civic Engagement Fairs, please email Kate DeGraaf at email@example.com and we will make sure to add you to our list.
Please email Kate DeGraaf at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like your location to be one of three Bruins Give Back sites on one of the dates listed above during the 2015-2016 school year.
