NJ MED, a non-profit 501c3, mission is to provide an alternative lifestyle for youths through higher education, both nationally and internationally. NJ MED has developed two major projects over the last 10 years:
Nationally they’ve created the countries top high school drop-out models for at-risk minority males – the 100% Graduation Rate Program, and internationally, NJ MED has developed the World Top 20 Education Poll project, that monitors over 200 nations education systems for students from 3 to 25.
In 1995, NJ MED (New Jersey Minority Educational Development) was formed to help develop practical solutions to the problems of minority youth development in public education, and to foster higher education and career pursuit aimed at enhancing positive growth within the minority community, in one of the nation’s poorest and most violent cities, Camden, New Jersey.
That resulted in increasing high school and college male graduation rates by 49% and 61%. NJ MED achieved their success, by working with local colleges, businesses, and community support services organizations.
NJ MED is also partners with Opportunity Nation, America’s Promise Alliance, US Global Partnership for Education, and a member of the United Nation’s NGO Branch. NJ MED is also a member of the Google Grant program.
