As an organization, we strive to not only uplift the Bronx community but also seek to create opportunities for students to gain externship experience and expand their network. The Communications Team is responsible for all onboarding of new members, so we hope to make the process as smooth as possible. Below, we have outlined various details on the member experience, as well as how to apply and join our community.
The Member Experience
At FBDC we believe in using our skills to benefit the community we have all learned to call home: The Bronx. When you join FBDC as a student, you become a Research/Business Analyst. As an Analyst, you take part in team training and focus on creating informational material for our clients. You have the chance to get your work highlighted on our Social Media pages and published on our website. From there, you have the ability to move up within our organization, working with clients and leading projects.
We have weekly, virtual team meetings as well as monthly general team meetings to bring our entire staff together. Staff members are expected to attend a majority of team meetings and contribute to our team Resource Reports. We also host speaking events, alumni panels, and webinars for our staff that we encourage all to attend.
Despite being virtual due to the pandemic, the FBDC strives to foster a welcoming and warm environment. We hope to bring together a diverse set of students passionate about helping others and making valuable connections. We plan to build our community through our weekly meetings, virtual programming, and training sessions.
