Community Service is one of the most rewarding experiences!
Youth Council members have been able to help East Brunswick in so many aspects. Community Service is a fun way to get to know a bunch of people while helping those who are less fortunate. By participating you can earn a number of community service hours that can be placed on your official high school transcript.
Youth Council holds food drives to benefit Middlesex County Food Organization and Outreach Distribution Services, helps the elementary schools with their special events, visits the residents at the Chelsea Senior Assisted Living facility, UNICEF, the DAISY Association, the Township of East Brunswick, the Library, Temple B'Nai Shalom, Ronald McDonald House, American Cancer Society and many other organizations.
