New City Kids is a great nonprofit located in the McGinley Square neighborhood. They hire local high school students to serve as tutors, music teachers and mentors to the 1st - 8th graders in their after school programs. The high schoolers have programming of their own including a 1:1 college mentor that walks them through every step of the college process, tutoring, professional visits where they learn about new careers and optional bible study groups. It's a great organization that is making a big impact in the lives of Jersey City youth.

This is an organization that provides afterschool programs for underserved, minority, and poor populations in Jersey City, NJ. I volunteered as a homework helper/tutor for both the elementary and high school students. The students are very open and friendly, and really appreciate the assistance that is given. The experience is extremely rewarding!
