About The BAC

Brooklyn Action Corps

The Brooklyn Action Corps is a neighborhood organization whose purpose is to better the community by working together toward the solution of its social, physical, and economic problems. The Board is active in all that affects the greater good of the Neighborhood.

The BAC is responsible for two types of meetings: Board Meetings and General Membership Meetings. Board Meetings are held every month; General Meetings are scheduled six times a year.

All members of the community are invited to join the BAC and serve as a volunteer board member. Board membership requires a commitment of 2 to 3 hours per month.
