The Mission of the Lakewood Chamber: The mission of the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce is to serve the needs of the business community by advocacy; i.e., representing the voice of the business community; advancing interaction and relationships among businesses for their collective best interest and that of the community; and enhancing business growth and success through education, services, and the development of programs for members.

About P.A.L.S. (Pupil Assisted Learning Services): P.A.L.S. is an elective class that includes four major components – civic participation, character development, career exploration, and service-learning. Students participate in projects and activities that make a difference by helping others, thus forming a link between school and community. Volunteering with community organizations enables students to use their free time productively. Learning experiences, such as job shadowing, mentoring, senior citizen outreach, computer tutoring, supervised childcare, and partnerships with local businesses and organizations, enriches everyone’s lives. P.A.L.S includes occasional after school, evening, or weekend events for which attendance may be required. For more information, call Gay Huggins-Dickey at 732-905-3500 Ext 7402.
