What began 25 years ago as a bold experiment has become a cornerstone of the movement for educational equity in New Jersey. Corps members have become some of our state’s leading educators, entrepreneurs, and policy makers.

Twenty-five years ago, the narrative for students in cities like Newark and Camden was uncertain. Today—thanks to visionary leadership, bold decision-making, and committed partnerships—Newark has more students in "beating the odds" schools than 50 other cities across the country and more students in Camden are graduating from high school than ever before.
