Education and Libraries
The Education and Libraries Community Service opens doors to a new life of opportunities for our youth as well as those returning to school. Our goal is to assist in the goal to improve others through education. One way we do that is by providing scholarships. We also support organizations that provide educational assistance. For example, we donate funds to The Northborough Helping Hands Association for their annual backpack drive, books to Worcester The City That Reads initiative, and books and museum passes to the Northborough Free Library.
Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math)
Since 2000 NJWC has been encouraging girls to consider a career in science, technology, math and/or science by holding a Women In STEM conference each year. Open to girls in middle school, it provides a variety of workshops taught by women with careers in STEM to introduce the girls to careers in their field.
