Programs Offered

Special Newark Initiatives

Prudential Citywide Math Initiative

STC Newark serves as Lead partner with Prudential on this initiative to increase math readiness skills of all Newark youth. At the high school level, we expose high school students to math careers through classroom workshops and the new Prudential Actuary Career Exploration (PACE) program. We also bring together math teachers and professors to close the gap on the high school to college math gap. At the K-8 level, we will soon be launching a citywide math campaign. For more information, email [email protected] (K-8) or [email protected] (9-12).

Victoria Foundation Public School Grants Program

STC Newark is one of four intermediary organizations administering $200,000 in Victoria Foundation grant money to Newark traditional and charter schools to use for College Access & Success.

Spirit of Community Service Clubs

STC Newark serves as the lead coordinator this initiative of the Prudential Spirit of Community Office.
