PRIDE in Our Schools

PRIDE Grant Contact for the MTEA

Deb O’Reilly –



What is PRIDE and how is it connected to the MTEA?

Since 1994, NJEA has conducted the PRIDE in Public Education campaign, a statewide effort to share the successes of public education with all New Jerseyans and build strong community support for and involvement in our public schools.

As part of its campaign, NJEA provides grants to its local/county affiliates for projects that bring the public schools out into the community and the community into the public schools. Each year there are hundreds of local PRIDE projects conducted by NJEA members.

Due to our current political climate and the necessity to fund highly effective projects as well as have more local associations participate, we cannot guarantee that your level of funding or types of activities from previous years can be funded.

NJEA recognizes the need to pass more school budgets as an important way to protect educational programs and our members’ jobs.
