Congratulations to the Class of 2018!

IHDF-NJ is proud to announce that twelve of our original group of Newark Dreamers graduated from high school this year! We could not be more proud of their achievements and the growth that they have made on their journey.

Our Dreamers are attending Bloomfield College, Colorado College, Montclair State University, Pennsylvania State University, The College of Saint Elizabeth, William Paterson University and they’re preparing for careers in medicine, nursing, music, video production, sports medicine, athletic training and more.

To celebrate our Dreamers, we hosted a celebratory lunch in June and we created a picture slide show showing their growth from middle school through high school. We also participated in the 2018 national College Signing Day Celebration by attending the national event at Temple University in Philadelphia and by creating our own College Signing Day video. Finally, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor and with the help of Randall Isaac and his team at kite+key - the Rutgers Tech Store, we were able to gift our college bound Dreamers with new MacBook Air laptops!
