NJ Bonner AmeriCorps

New Jersey Bonner AmeriCorps Program

The College of New Jersey in collaboration with the Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation oversees both the National and New Jersey Bonner AmeriCorps program. The Bonner AmeriCorps programs mobilize the talents and interests of college students and community members, the resources of institutions of higher education, and the expertise of community-based organizations to address issues related to college access, food security, job skills development, and youth literacy. TCNJ manages New Jersey Bonner AmeriCorps members both at TCNJ and local nonprofit organizations and institutions of higher learning. Bonner Community Scholars are among the over 40 AmeriCorps and Education Works members who commit a minimum of 300 hours of service to the community each year.
