Welcome, Educators & Policy Makers


“The program instills adrenaline in my body and its heart fulfilling to know that I’m involved in something so uplifting. I know that with the help of this program and some hard work on my behalf, my success is un-limited because I have a tuition free college opportunity. Class-work, homework, tests, and quizzes are extremely important to me because I know that after the hard work, heavy rewards will come. I also have a sense of personal responsibility too, the idea of having a healthy future makes me feel as if volunteer service is something that I owe to my community for caring about my future and that’s why I volunteer my time to after school activities that will help to reshape my community.

So I ask that you invest some of your time to educate yourself on this spectacular program that is changing the lives of many families in New Jersey.”
