New Jersey Together
In 2007, CNJG brought together the state's philanthropic sector to leverage its collective resources, knowledge, and expertise for the good of New Jersey’s citizens. All told, 39 funders throughout New Jersey leveraged more than $100,000 with a match of $300,000 from the State in support of the Civic Justice Corps. The program sought to embrace court-involved and formerly incarcerated youth who complete extensive service projects in their own neighborhoods, while also attending classes to obtain their GED. New Jersey Together was in place for two years in three pilot cities.
