Who We Are
The BBC is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization. From the beginning, it has been inspired by Senator Harris Wofford, who worked alongside Sargent Shriver to create the U.S. Peace Corps. He was also the first CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service that oversees AmeriCorps and other government-funded domestic volunteer programs. . . Read More →

Individuals interested in international volunteer service are also encouraged to join, with annual dues set at a de minimus level.
