New Opportunity: Attention new and aspiring counselors! “On December 7th, in conjunction with Monmouth University, the Monmouth County School Counselor Association hosted a round-table event for new and aspiring counselors.  We just wanted to take a moment to thank all that participated in our new and aspiring counselors event hosted by Monmouth University.  Our panelists were excited to share their experiences.  The students enjoyed hearing about the counselor’s different perspectives and approaches to school counseling.  We are hoping to make this an annual event.”

Again this year your organization has established a “Counselors Helping Others” program where each meeting a charity is chosen and we bring donated items to the organization. In the past we have donated prom dresses, school supplies, coats, canned goods and to the annual “toys for teens” program.
