Most Community Corps students make a long-term commitment to the Swearer Center, participating for a full academic year or longer. After students are accepted into a Community Corp group or community partner, they are required to participate in orientation, workshops and trainings that provide foundational knowledge and skills alongside experiential opportunities.
All Brown students are eligible to apply to participate. Community Corps recruits within the first month of both the fall and spring semesters.
