Support Living Education – Become a Project U.S.E. Sustaining Member!

For over 40 years Project U.S.E. has been enriching the educational experiences of students in communities throughout New Jersey. Many of these students would not otherwise have access to the kinds of transformative experiences that Project U.S.E. provides. We need your help in order to continue this important work, and build toward the future. This is your opportunity to be a part of “living education” in New Jersey.

Living Education Since 1970What do we mean by “living education”?

For us, living education is a phrase that conveys the richness of the experiential programs that Project U.S.E. provides.

It describes the context of our programs:

Project U.S.E. programs immerse students in a “living classroom”. Whether we are taking a group on a multi-day retreat at our 50,000 acre wilderness center at Wildcat Mountain, in a classroom engaging in a hands-on boat building project, or teaching urban gardening at our educational center in the heart of Newark, we get students in touch with the wonders of the world around them.

It describes the approach of our leadership and staff:
Our staff members are professional educators who are highly trained, highly motivated, and engage in ongoing professional development. Experiential education is their life’s work.

Most importantly it speaks to the educational process in which we engage our students:
Our programs address the development of the whole person in preparation for life. We awaken curiosity, instill confidence, teach ethics and build character. We begin a process that lasts for a student’s whole life.
