Partnership Opportunites

NYA is looking for partners in Bergen, Passaic, and Essex Counties in New Jersey. Please contact us if you represent a  tax-exempt organization or a school district.

College Path Mentorship Program

The program offers quality, well-rounded educational experiences by equipping mentees with not only academic but also social skills needed for college success. Strong academic support is offered to high school students by their college mentors who assist them weekly with essay writing, resume building, SAT/ACT test preparation, etc.

Summer Math Camp

The summer math camp offered by NYA aims to assist students to strengthen their mathematical foundations, overcome summer learning loss and ultimately maximize their academic success at high school. Additionally, we want to narrow achievement gaps and develop students’ intellectual capacity so that they get ahead for the next school year.

STEAM Classes for K-8 Students

NYA’s STEAM Academies aims to heighten K-8 students’ interest and enhance their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Our goal is to achieve this mission by igniting curiosity in students and establishing a life-long love for STEAM through our expertly designed, creative & fun curriculum.
