What is a Community Inclusion Sponsor? A Community Inclusion Sponsor is a social group, community organization, agency, or company (on or off campus) willing to serve as a Place and Purpose Community Builder through committing representatives to volunteer once a week at a specific time in the daily schedule with BCPP for one month.
What kind of time commitment is required? Community Inclusion Sponsors send at least two representatives once a week at a specific time for a month-long period. Time commitment per visit is 30 minutes–1 ½ hours. For example, sponsors assist each Wednesday from 9-9:30 during adaptive PE.
What else is needed from the Community Inclusion Sponsor? For the first visit to BCPP, Sponsors are asked to present a “show and tell” description of the purpose of your organization and its role in the community. For the final visit, Sponsors are asked to bring a memento for the students, whether that be a shared item, such as a signed poster, or a small item for each student (e.g. stickers, photos, etc.).
Why should your organization be a Community Inclusion Sponsor? The Community Inclusion Sponsor program is designed to ensure that both BCPP students and sponsors experience positive interactions in a mutually safe environment. Sponsor relationships create a reciprocal flow of energy between BCPP students and their communities.
