Tools 4 School

Tools 4 Schools program provides free classroom supplies through the Tools 4 Schools Resource Center, a free classroom supply store for teachers. Teachers from YES Academy may shop once during the Fall Semester and once during the Spring Semester. Last year over 170 schools and educational programs were served in Newark, Elizabeth, Irvington, Paterson, Plainfield, Jersey City, and East Orange.

The Resource Center is stocked by staff members and hard-working volunteers, and all of our supplies are donated. While many of our items come from manufacturers, retailers and our sponsors, many individuals and community groups also donate items or hold supply drives.
