What is the Changebuilders Program?

The Changebuilders program, in conjunction with New Jersey Campus Compact (NJCC), is a program where individuals can take on year-long service projects to build skills that can make them more successful in the coming job search, meet other students who are also interested in making a difference in the community and could apply for a scholarship of $1000!

How will Changebuilders benefit me?

As well as this, throughout the year, you’ll attend different workshops that will help develop your resume, highlighting the service you are doing and how important it is.

As well as all this, if students complete the required hours within a year, they can apply for a scholarship of $1000 that can be used on whatever they see fit
