Community Activity Programs should strive to focus attention and awareness on local issues and events that affect the lives of individuals living in our neighborhoods, communities and cities. Just as each council is unique, so is each community. As such, we need to be aware that our communities continue to change and their needs and circumstances are always increasing. Understandably, councils cannot address every concern of every community or be actively involved in all programs endorsed by the New Jersey State Council. However, it is important, that we identify needs, establish priorities and attempt to implement measures that make our communities a better place to live.


In today’s world, Government agencies, community organizations and service groups can be valuable sources of information and assistance in fulfilling objectives. Share your ideas with other volunteer groups and work together for a common goal.  The parish programs are also excellent sources for identifying needs within the community.
