Welcome to the Bonner Center for Civic and Community Engagement at The College of New Jersey. The Center is responsible for mobilizing faculty, students and staff to help sustain and advance the communities in which we live; in other words, to find mission-consistent ways to improve the quality of life for all. We work with partners throughout the Trenton community as well as Mercer, Burlington and Hunterdon Counties to address many issues including poverty, homelessness, hunger, education, environmental needs, juvenile justice, health, immigration and more. Along with our commitment to direct service, the Bonner Center is also dedicated to building the capacity of its partners and addressing the aforementioned issues through systemic change. The Bonner Center facilitates the Trenton Prevention Policy Board, a group of local stakeholders dedicated to making policy, programmatic and practice recommendations to prevent juvenile crime and promote positive youth development.
