Additional BENEFITS:

  • Becoming volunteers allows residents to execute crucial skills used in the workplace, such as problem-solving, teamwork, communication, and analytical thinking while engaging with community leaders and professional staff. 
  • Getting involved, attending meetings and events helps with making new connections, expanding social network and boosting social skills. This serves as a great way for new and long term residents to integrate into the Township mission of diversity and exclusivity.

"I have had the honor of serving on the Shade Tree Advisory Committee as Chair, Vice Chair, and member since 1985. During all these years, I have seen the fruit of our efforts in the fully matured, manicured, and preserved trees that this committee was instrumental in stewarding. Today, Plainsboro proudly boasts beautiful tree-lined streets, parks, and right of ways in the township which has awarded us Tree City USA recognition. I’d highly recommend this committee for community services because it’s so rewarding! Not only will it make you environmentally aware, but it will also make you appreciate the resulting shade and beauty that trees provide in our lives."

"I've been a member of the Human Relations Council since 2017. Despite COVID-19, we were and continue to be a thriving team in our beautiful community. Serving the people of this Township has been an absolute joy for me! I had always wanted to be a part of the government, and thanks to the opportunity afforded to me by the Mayor and the HRC, it became possible. We are a blessed community and I’m so proud to call Plainsboro my home!"

"I have served on the Environmental Advisory Committee of Plainsboro for over 20 years. It has been an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. My role in the EAC has allowed me to make a meaningful contribution to the growth of the Township. Plainsboro is recognized as one of the best places to live in New Jersey. It has been delightful to work with other members of the EAC Committee and Township staff to provide the Township Committee with necessary input on environmental issues."
