America Needs You fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first-generation college students. We do this by providing transformative mentorship and intensive career development. Our New Jersey program workshops take place in Jersey City or Newark.

Mentor Coaches are dynamic professionals from a variety of industries across the city leveraging their talent, networks and expertise to help first-generation college students achieve academic and career success. These amazing volunteers all share America Needs You vision and believe success is not merely defined by their professional achievements, but also by one’s dedication to give back to his or her community.
