About The NJ Family Engagement Hub

The New Jersey Family Engagement Hub recognizes that students thrive when families and communities are engaged in the school community increasing the likelihood of student success. Our goals are to promote and engage in activities and policies that build collaborative partnerships among youth, family, school, and community in order to enhance child development and student achievement by:

  • Serving as a centralized information hub on family engagement.
  • Informing educators, practitioners, and families about the latest educational opportunities and barriers by providing technical assistance, resources, and support on effective family engagement policies, practices, and activities that lead to improvements in student development, academic achievement, and long-term success
  • Providing parents and caregivers with easy-to-understand, usable information to solve present-day problems.
  • Providing youth with a voice to share their experiences and ideas to support their continued academic success
  • Enhancing parent and family capacity to effectively work with schools and professionals to meet children’s needs
