Using the Jersey Give Back Guide’s online Generosity Generator, individuals can choose from four categories — Community, Arts, Environment, and Newark — to learn about this year’s 22 recommended nonprofits, including the Conservancy in the Newark section.
The guide, and online Generosity Generator, make it simple and easy to give back to some pretty spectacular New Jersey nonprofits--including us! All donations go directly to the organizations.

The Newark Youth Leadership Project (NYLP) is a year-round leadership and job training program. We are now accepting applications for our 6-week summer internship in 2015. Working as an NYLP intern at the Conservancy is an opportunity to gain valuable job skills, to have new exciting experiences, to learn about the environment, and to get ready for college. All interested Newark high school students with at least a 2.5 GPA are encouraged to apply. Interviews will be given on a first come, first served basis, so students must submit their applications as soon as possible to be considered. The deadline to apply is January 9, 2015.
