Non Profit Spotlight: Project Readiness

We are excited to introduce you to Project Readiness. Project Readiness is a 501 (c)(3) organization whose mission is to enable academic success for all of New Jersey’s children, regardless of income level.  New Jersey, like many states, has municipalities in which children of means attend school alongside children at an economic disadvantage.  Data collected by organizations such as the United Way show that this economic disadvantage often translates into an academic disadvantage.  To that end, a student’s family income is one of the most prominent predictors of that student’s SAT score. Also, children of homes with less income are less likely to pursue higher education. 
Project Readiness has the mission of providing students with a year’s complement of age-appropriate school supplies and a new backpack. That student is equipped for the coming academic year with both tangible supplies, and the knowledge that a sponsor believed in their potential enough to make a monetary investment in their schooling.
