Greater Newark Conservancy's mission is to promote environmental stewardship to improve the quality of life in New Jersey's urban communities. The Conservancy directly serves residents of Newark and surrounding urban communities through its Education, Community Greening, Environmental Justice and Job Training programs, and a larger area through outreach activities regarding environmental issues. Emphasis is placed on working with community groups, schools, youth organizations, senior citizens, inter-generational groups, adolescent youth and adult ex-offenders. Most served are low-income, disadvantaged African-Americans and Latinos. Our guiding principle is to encourage and highlight community empowerment, pride and self-sufficiency.
