Brookdale Cares

Student Life & Activities supports volunteer service in our efforts to build community throughout Monmouth County and beyond.  Through our partnerships with other Brookdale departments and community organizations we help to plan events such as the ones listed below.  In addition, all recognized clubs and organizations are required to complete one service project to remain in good standing.
