The New Jersey Future Educators Association (NJFEA) student officers are pleased to announce our 2014-15 statewide service project, "Future Teachers Making a Difference." We invite future teachers in grades 9-12 as well as students enrolled in Tomorrow's Teachers course electives to plan and implement service-learning projects that make a concrete and visible impact on their schools and/or communities.
To participate in "Future Teachers Making a Difference," a high school must have an approved NJFEA chapter or Tomorrow's Teachers course elective. Each school may submit a service project proposal that can be led by a single individual or preferably a group of future teachers.
Future teachers will be invited to present their projects and be honored at a special spring "Future Teachers Making a Difference" recognition event at The College of New Jersey with state education leaders.
Get the link to the service project flyer for details and proposal guidelines, and get your chapter started today!
SPECIAL INCENTIVE! Up to 10 "Future Teachers Making a Difference" service projects will be selected by a special NJFEA committee and recommended for filming by the Emmy-award winning Classroom Close-Up that will appear on NJ public television next fall.
Proposals must be submitted to Mr. Laurence R. Fieber, NJFEA State Director, by Friday, November 14, 2014.
Proposals may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax to 609-637-5065.
Service projects must be completed by Friday, May 1, 2015.
