We are very happy to report that our "Future Teachers Making a Difference" initiative is going extremely well. I am so pleased by the great response that we have from participating chapters and Tomorrow's Teachers course electives from every region of New Jersey. I am looking forward to supporting these service projects that will impact our schools and communities.
NJFEA is also sponsoring the "TEENS FOR JEANS" service project for a second year due to its high participation rate and huge success! This service project is where jeans are collected by our future teachers, dropped off at local Aéropostale stores, and distributed to teens living in homeless shelters in our state. There is an important need for these jeans and NJFEA is very pleased to be of support.
Please see informational flyer about TEENS FOR JEANS that starts today and ends on February 15th. Last year, NJFEA collected hundreds of jeans that were greatly appreciated by the students who needed them last winter. I enthusiastically urge your participation.
Together our future teachers will make a difference to our fellow teens in NJ. Thanks, as always, for your participation.
