BCPC NYC officially launched as the first formal on-the-ground group activity on February 23, 2015. Blue Collar Post Collective was originally a group of people who worked in the machine room and other technical roles and met up to talk about their life and work in the same bar every month. Over time the group grew until the official launch in 2015. In April 2016, BCPC was awarded non-profit status and expanded to Los Angeles the following June.

July Meet-up - July 24 - Gatsby's Bar & Restaurant

Come join us for another monthly installment of BCPC NY! You'll see old friends and make new ones, all in a non-intimidating environment. 7PM at Gatsby's!


Last Up: BCPC NY Life Skills Field Day - June 30 - 2PM - Central Park


We went to school, read the books, and learned the software. We did what our teachers and instructors and randos on the internet told us was best. We’ve all worked hard to get where we are, but what has been missing from our collective education?

Jump ahead on your hard knocks education and join BCPC NY for a Life Skills Field Day in Central Park! We’ll have three informal thirty minute break-out sessions round-robin style facilitated by BCPC community experts (and your peers) focusing on:

--Personal Finance (facilitated by Dane Benko)
--Rates & Negotiations (facilitated by Anastasia Cipolla & Ethan Anderson)
--Social Skills, Relationships & Mentorship (facilitated by Hunter Boone, Quincy Ledbetter, Barbie Leung, Rob Wilson)

Our experts will guide the discussion and offer their own expertise and resources, but participants will also be active contributors to the conversation, allowing each session to be tailored to the experience level and job roles of the people in it. It's an open discussion sitting on blankets in Central Park on a warm day -- with snacks!

103 St and West Central Park - check the FB event for the exact meeting location.
