Who We Are

Our Mission

Be the Change is a community service and activism group made up of students from Kean University and other Volunteers dedicated to serving the needs of local, state, national, and global community. We believe in a "hands on" approach and building partnerships to affect positive change.



The Beginning

Be the Change grew out of a course in death education. The students in the class wanted to improve the conditions for patients in a local hospice center and spent a weekend in a makeover project to create a craft area, dining room and sitting room for patients and their families.
