Current Programs

Students, Faculty and Staff can get involved in a variety of programs, as well as access service initiatives for the classroom. Our current programs and services include:

Direct Service and Volunteer Opportunities

Bonner Leader Program
The Bonner Leader Program is a campus-based community service program, through which students can engage directly with local non-profit organizations in yearlong commitment. Each Bonner Leader serves a minimum of 15 hours per a week, with the ultimate goal of completing 300 hours of community engagement by the end of the academic year. Bonner Leaders also participate in weekly leadership workshops.

The Bonner Leader Program is for students who are first and foremost interested in bettering their community and serving others. Other benefits of joining the program include building lifelong friendships with a group of likeminded and diverse peers at Middlesex County College; professional and personal development; and intensive leadership training.

Volunteers in Action Club
The Volunteers in Action club is open to all students interested in getting involved in community service both on and off campus. Club members participate in weekly meetings during which they discuss their common service interests and plan on-campus service events. Club members have the opportunity to engage in community service 0ff-campus with a variety of community partners. Club members earn points for their community service endeavors which can be traded in for prizes at the end of the semester. Please contact democracyhouse@middlesexcc.edu to be added to the club Canvas page. All are welcome to join Volunteers in Action!

Throughout the academic year, Democracy House provides one-day opportunities to participate in service for MCC students, faculty and staff. “Days of Service” may include a guest speakers, as well as reflective panels or workshops to provide an educational component to all service events.
