MIDDLESEX COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS GRADUATE FROM GOODWILL AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
SPONSORED BY WOODBRIDGE AND BERKELEY COLLEGE

Berkeley College is happy to announce the recent graduation of the fifth class of Goodwill Ambassadors from the Woodbridge location, NJ. Students from local high schools took part in the 10-week Goodwill Ambassador – Youth Connection program.

The Goodwill Ambassadors program was created and implemented by Berkeley College in partnership with John E. McCormac, Woodbridge Mayor, and local schools and businesses. During a ceremony held at Il Castello’s in Woodbridge, the graduates received certificates, backpacks, and the Woodbridge Township Mayor’s Citation.

“As Goodwill Ambassadors you have chosen to set yourselves apart from others,” said Debra Mallamace, Berkeley College Campus Operating Officer, Woodbridge. “You are all caring citizens who understand the importance of being involved in the community. I respect your intelligence, compassion, enthusiasm and leadership.”

Each week students participated in workshops covering topics such as Leadership, Economic Development, Teamwork, Business Etiquette, Networking, Woodbridge History, Elections, Community Involvement, and Cultural Life and Negotiation. Presentations were given by experts in the community and followed by focus groups where students discussed the topics presented.

A leader in business education for 80 years, Berkeley College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and enrolls more than 8,700 students — including more than 800 international students — in its Baccalaureate and Associate degree programs. The College has four New Jersey locations — Woodland Park, Paramus, Woodbridge, and Newark. And in New York there are four locations — Midtown Manhattan, Lower Manhattan in the Wall Street area, Brooklyn, and White Plains.  Berkeley College Online also offers full degree programs.
