The Bronx Recovery Corps

In spring 2021, Lehman College, in collaboration with HERE to HERE, launched the Bronx Recovery Corps (BRC) as a model to integrate learning from work into students’ academic pathways, providing an integrated youth talent development opportunity for first generation college students while infusing the Bronx with essential supports and services to support the borough’s economic recovery. The Bronx Recovery Corps incorporates four key elements that meet the twofold purpose of setting Lehman students on a path to career success and contributing to the borough's and city’s economic recovery. The four elements of the Recovery Corps experience are: (1) employer engagement; (2) community engagement; (3) academic credit; and (4) career preparation.
