Monmouth Center for World Religions and Ethical Thought: The principle purpose (mission) of the Monmouth Center for World Religions and Ethical Thought (MCWRET) is to enhance the acceptance of religious and cultural diversity and the practice of understanding toward those different from ourselves through education, seminars, and community events
Garden State MOSAIC is a multi-faith educational program for middle and high school youth which is centered in the Monmouth County area of New Jersey. The program is cosponsored by the Monmouth Center for World Religions and Ethical Thought (MCWRET) and the Monmouth County Human Relations Commission (MCHRC).
MOSAIC enables students to learn about each other’s belief systems and practices through a series of sessions hosted by various faith groups at their places of congregation. The program also helps students develop leadership and dialog skills that are critical to becoming change agents in their own communities. During the program, students plan and conduct a community service project to allow them to practice some of the values that are common between all belief systems.
