  • The pilot programs launched in 2010 with the goal to help jobless people in Newark learn a trade so they can secure jobs and gain financial independence.
  • The first group of 16 students who participated in “Painting Works” graduated earlier this year. They completed a 12-week program and helped clean-up several buildings and non-profit centers.
  • There is a waiting list of over 200 people who want to join the next class for “Painting Works.”


Recognized by Mayor Cory Booker of Newark as the kind of effort that can accomplish real change in our communities.
