Isles

Isles, Inc. is a community development and environmental organization. Their mission is to foster self-reliant families and healthy, sustainable communities. Isles promotes public policies that support family self-reliance and community health.

To combat Trenton’s high dropout and low employment rates by preparing at-risk youths for work, higher-education and self-reliance, a grant from the NJ SIM Foundation will enable students to have access to current technology, applications and support to improve reading, writing and numeracy skills. Decreasing this performance gap and technological divide that students face will significantly help them succeed in life.

Street Light Mission

A grant from the NJ SIM Foundation has helped Street Light Mission provide computer technology for NJ students of struggling families. Many of the children who visit the mission do not have regular access to computer technology to complete school work. Through this program 10 students from junior and senior high school students would be selected through an application process to be loaned a personal computer laptop loaded with necessary software and a printer to utilize for the coming school year. Those who are successful during this year would be allowed to continue to utilize the computer for the following school year.
