Community Service Efforts Create and Enhance Partnerships in the City of Newark

In light of Newark Academy’s approaching 250th anniversary in 2024 and renewed calls for social justice initiatives, NA’s community service program strengthened its existing partnership with programs and organizations in the city of Newark during the 2020-21 school year. These partnerships, which demonstrate the NA community’s generosity of spirit and commitment to service, include a multi-year engagement with Covenant House and a long-standing and evolving partnership with The Apostles’ House.

The Covenant House partnership includes an annual Solidarity Sleepout each November, with NA students raising awareness and funds in support of housing and services for young people who have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment, homelessness and human trafficking. Although November 2020’s Solidarity Sleepout took place as a virtual event, approximately 180 NA students participated, garnering $15,915 for this important effort.

A two-decade partnership with The Apostles’ House in Newark is another example of NA’s commitment to community-based service learning. A source of comprehensive social services for homeless women with children and for families at risk of homelessness in Newark and Essex County, The Apostles’ House has continued to partner with NA despite having to shift to virtual activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The NA community service program pivoted its traditional holiday party efforts in 2020 to have student volunteers distribute food and goodie bags and offer virtual arts and crafts events for Apostles’ House families.

The NA Reads initiative kicked off in November 2020, serving both The Apostles’ House and Newark’s 13th Avenue Elementary School. Through NA Reads, students read books over Zoom to Apostles’ House children, who read along with their own books. In early 2021, the program expanded to include NA students and parents recording story readings for families of young children who attend the 13th Avenue School.
