Changebuilders

About Changebuilders

The Changebuilders program in conjunction with New Jersey Campus Compact (NJCC) is designed to offer Drew students the opportunity to volunteer both locally and abroad. In an effort to increase a culture of community service at Drew, this program allows students to give back to the community while refining their leadership skills, communication, global awareness and much more! As a Changebuilder, students are expected to complete a minimum of 40 hours of community service for the year. Those who successfully complete their community service hours will be awarded a certificate at the Civic Engagement Award Ceremony.

Why be a Changebuilder?

There are tons of benefits to becoming a Changebuilder. Drew Changebuilders have a positive impact on their communities, meet like-minded students, have access to special professional networking and career exploration opportunities, and have the opportunity to earn a $1,000 scholarship.
