Be part of the solution.

Berkeley College has a long tradition of involvement with and service to the communities we serve. Continuing that tradition has become an important part of the Berkeley experience, involving students, alumni, faculty, and staff to support worthy causes. Community service efforts align with the mission and values of Berkeley College, exemplifying the idea that teaching and learning take place both in and out of the academic setting.

BerkeleyCares was created to organize efforts that address important social, economic, and environmental issues in the community. Throughout each year, members of the Berkeley community provide thousands of hands-on volunteer hours, supporting organizations in the critical areas of food, health, shelter, and student success.

To learn more about BerkeleyCares on your campus, to request volunteers for your organization, or to recommend other charitable organization that might benefit, please email BerkeleyCares@BerkeleyCollege.edu.

Strategies in Sustainability

From conserving energy to reducing waste, Berkeley College is working to save the planet. Eco-conscious improvements are being made at every Berkeley campus. For more information, view our sustainability initiatives.

9/11 Day at Home

All faculty, staff, students and alumni are invited to participate in 9/11 Day at Home, a virtual volunteering initiative in honor of September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. 9/11 Day At Home is organized by the nonprofit 9/11 Day, in partnership with World Central Kitchen, the Corporation for National and Community Service, and Points of Light. Check your email or contact BerkeleyCares@BerkeleyCollege.edu for a list of virtual opportunities. You can also fulfill a need within your own community between September 7 and 11, 2020. 

Community Service Week 2020

While the COVID-19 public health crisis postponed Berkeley College’s 2020 Community Service Week, Berkeley Cares Committee members social distanced over Memorial Day weekend and placed more than 1,000 flags at the gravesites of U.S. veterans at East Ridgelawn Cemetery in Clifton, NJ. Information about the 2021 campaign will be posted as it becomes available.
