"There were so many great youth service projects!
Thanks to everyone who participated in the New Jersey Make Service Count Challenge, a Youth Service Initiative of the NJ Governor's Jefferson Award coordinated by the Star Ledger and the Community Foundation of NJ.
In addition to the Benedictine School Community winning the Jefferson Award New Jersey Regional Competition and Gold Banner for outstanding volunteerism, two of our service clubs are being honored for their exceptional good works at the Newark Museum on May 21.
The PEACE & JUSTICE CLUB has been working diligently at spreading their Anti-Bullying Program to other schools in the local communities and across the states.
The SHAC CLUB (Students Helping All Children) has been focusing their efforts on helping raise awareness to stop child slave labor, especially in the chocolate industry.
Both of these clubs have been leaders of change bringing hope into the world. Together, we can and are making a difference across the globe.How awesome is that!
