Pride in Public Education
Since 1994, NJEA has conducted the Pride in Public Education campaign, a statewide effort to share the successes of public education with all New Jerseyans and build strong community support for and involvement in our public schools.
Local Pride Grants:
NJEA provides grants to its local affiliates for projects that bring the public schools out into the community and the community into the public schools. Family involvement programs, participation in community fairs and events, Read Across America celebrations, and senior citizen outreach efforts are among the hundreds of local “Pride” projects conducted each year by NJEA members.
If you have any ideas for PRIDE projects you can submit your ideas via email to Jackie Wellman. When submitting an idea proposal please include time of year (fall, winter or spring), materials needed, number of volunteers needed and approximate cost of project. Thanks!
