Educators 4 Equity


Who We Are

Our Motto:

"Fair does not mean giving every child the same thing, it means giving every child what they need"

Our Goals:

As future educators, we strive to bring academic opportunities to elementary students in the Trenton area. We hope to serve as role models for higher education and foster positive relationships with our surrounding community.

What we do:

We volunteer at local elementary schools during after school homework clubs. We volunteer once a week for two hours and encourage all of our members to actively volunteer and create positive relationships with the students. We have meetings once a month to discuss current educational events both on campus and in the news.

Does this club sound interesting to you?

We table at club fairs during the spring and fall.

You can also email e4e@tcnj.edu for more information.
