Service

Service plays a huge role in our day-to-day lives, whether it’s helping a friend or someone we don’t even know. The Service Committee of BAC is aimed towards providing fun volunteer opportunities for our students. Since many of our students are not from around the Texas Panhandle, it is important that we provide ways in which they can stay involved and become connected with the area. What better way is there to become connected than to help others around your temporary home? If you are interested in helping others and bettering yourself along with the community, then this is the place for you!
