Energy for Education

Energy for Education

Education is the Fuel That Drives Success

Few NJR initiatives have more potential impact or profound reach than our education programs, which encourage academic excellence and performance. In partnership with those who share our hopes of building a promising future for today’s youth through lifelong education, we aim to stimulate learning, increase motivation and open a world of opportunities beyond school years.

Energy Hog

NJNG is proud to sponsor the Energy Hog, a nationwide energy-efficiency campaign launched by the Alliance to Save Energy and the Ad Council. The Energy Hog makes learning about energy fun while empowering children to make wise energy choices.

Project Venture

In partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Coastal and Northern Jersey, our on-site Project Venture mentoring program lets students experience the business world firsthand. NJNG employees mentor local students from Asbury Park and Lakewood middle schools enabling students to gain valuable insights to help them build a solid foundation for their future careers.

Corporate Tours

At NJNG our doors are open to you. Our Corporate Visit program is designed to familiarize participants with the various career paths the utility industry has to offer. On these educational tours, groups observe NJNG employees in action and gain firsthand knowledge about a variety of job opportunities in the energy field. Tailored to any grade level or group, it’s perfect for students, scouts, and organizations looking for a unique glimpse at our business.

Literacy Programs

Reading is fundamental to the development of children, sparking their imagination and creativity. That’s why NJNG partners with local libraries in the Share-A-Story program, which takes donated books and puts them in the hands of children who need them most. Also, by supporting Read Across America, NJNG helps children understand the importance of literacy and shares with them the joys of reading by reading to students at local schools.


NJNG is proud to help bring Beable, a life-ready literacy program, to students in underrepresented towns in our service territory. Beable reimagines literacy instruction to ensure students gain the literacy skills they need to be successful, regardless of their starting points. In addition, Beable’s career component helps foster a student’s curiosity about his or her future career opportunities.
