Every Year, BAYAC askes each regional team to work together to design and implement a community service project that exemplifies the BAYAC Mission and program objectives. While Corps Members and participants work towards achieving program objectives by providing tutoring, mentoring and health education services at their specific agency placements, these team projects give them the opportunity to collaborate as an entire group and truly experience teamwork. As we begin our fifth year of operation with a larger, integrated structure, we encourage collaborated work on these projects across programs. When possible, mentors and tutors are asked to participate in service projects with mentees and tutees. The guiding principle of Service-Learning project is for BAYAC participants to empower youth to serve their communities.
