Community Scholars Program
With the generous support of BB&T Bank, the Network has launched the Community Scholars program. Based on the previously successful Housing Scholars program model, we recruit individuals interested in the Community Development field and match them with our members throughout New Jersey. The program will build capacity within community organizations by providing a mechanism to attract the best and brightest students from Rutgers, Rowan, Kean, and other institutions to gain real-world, hands-on experience in the field.
Scholars learn critical skills including planning, communications, fiscal management, problem-solving, and time management while working within one of the following disciplines:
