ACElogo.pngThe Urban League of Essex County is proud to host a New Jersey State AmeriCorps Program.  

Our dedicated team of AmeriCorps Community Empowerment (ACE) members share their talents and develop new skills while providing community service in Newark and Essex County.   ACE members are focused on improving education and economic outcomes for residents of Fairmount Heights, located in Newark’s West Ward.


TW_CookieHouse.JPGWhether it’s community outreach, teen mentoring, adult education tutoring or helping residents increase their financial knowledge and stability, the service of our AmeriCorps members directly impacts the Fairmount Heights community and its families.   

Our program will help and support 100 disadvantaged residents in gaining the knowledge and tools necessary to advance their education, meet career goals and increase their opportunities for financial success.  

We are working together and getting things done!
