  • In Their Own Words: The Impact of SEEDS from Scholars' Perspectives

Changing Lives Through Education

Founded in 1992, New Jersey SEEDS is a privately funded, statewide, nonprofit organization. We change the lives of motivated, high-achieving students from low-income families by transforming their educational opportunities. We ensure that our students have the knowledge, skills, access and support to thrive at the nation’s finest schools and colleges. 

NJ SEEDS identifies and selects scholars at three different points along their educational trajectory and has developed three distinct academic programs to meet their needs. Each program: ScholarsYoung Scholars and College Preparatory is designed to rapidly build the critical thinking skills and knowledge base that will allow students to thrive in far more challenging school environments than those from which they come.
