The Board of Directors
Mission: While schools are going virtual and camps and classes are shutting down, we must recognize how necessary it is to continue educating and enriching our young children. Education should go far beyond the depths of material typically taught in school environments: it should be engaging, entertaining, and new. We seek to provide this experience for a generation of young students by allowing high school students to teach online classes of their chosen topic. We are also a fundraising organization, with 100% of donation profits going to the COVID-19 response funds.
Welcome to Project Engage NJ!
We are a 501(c)(3) organization that provides free classes for students from grades K-8. See class descriptions here for more information! We offer flexibility to instructors and each class is held on Zoom.
We hope to encourage a passion and curiosity for learning by connecting students from all over New Jersey. By teaching a class, high school students can inspire young students while sharing their interests and giving back to the community. Students should find learning rewarding and nonrestrictive, engaging in classes that foster curiosity rather than complacency. We hope to offer that support for these new bright minds.
Why we made Project engage nj
We admire the initiative Project EngageRVA has taken, and are inspired to start our own 501(c)(3) organization. By starting at the local level, we offer the same services to students in New Jersey while emphasizing our unique goals.
New Jersey is very diverse, and by introducing Project Engage NJ, we give students from different communities the chance to interact. People in New Jersey are also open to new ideas, so we believe that our innovative way of educating children will be well-perceived. By starting at the local level, we can provide a support network during these uncertain times.
A big thanks for the 420+ registrations from 125 families that have joined us in helping our mission!
