Consider Community Engagement through the PGK Adopt-A-Program to Read campaign.

PGK's Adopt-A-Program to Read Campaign

As the nonprofit arm of PGK, the Scholarship in Education Fund manages PGK's Adopt-A-Program to Read campaign. The PGK Scholarship in Education Fund's mission is to pursue and where possible achieve the ideal of a level playing field as it pertains to the financing of educational opportunities for children and youth, pre-K through college.

We are looking for your organization's support for this campaign which you provide through your sponsorship of a Recipient Organization such as a school or daycare. Your support helps us in our mission while further endearing your organization to your community.

Each Adopt-A-Program to Read educational tool sponsored by your organization features customized branding on your choice of the 1st or the 1st and 2nd pages of the books. This branding will encourage children, their parents, and other caregivers to remember and appreciate that your organization provided such a gift every time they open their books. You also have the option of choosing the language for your books as agreed upon by you and your Recipient Organization.

Customer Testimonials

"Promiseland Park's Pre-K and Kindergarten Audio Smart-Book is a meaningful educational workbook that, I believe, will support the development of literacy in our young readers.

As an educator and owner of an early childhood center, I believe in fostering reading through well-written books that support learning.

With this wonderful workbook PGK Educational Tools gives parents and teachers an opportunity to readily assess their children's level of literacy and mastery of other fundamental early education skills. PGK accomplishes this by providing instructional exercises and songs that are age-appropriate and fun.

I recommend Promiseland Park's Pre-K and Kindergarten Audio Smart-Book and support its use in early childhood education."

Dana Kearney

Shawn McClain- Community Engagement Specialist

Shawn M. McClain, a student athlete who graduated from Delaware State University with a double major in Sociology and Criminal Justice, is presently working on his Master’s Degree at Kean University in Special Education. He works with youth in his community by utilizing his vast training and experience in community organizations and networking skills. He makes youth aware of the various services the city has to offer. He also educates them about the opportunities and assists and motivates them to finish whatever opportunities they wish to endure.

Upon returning to Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1998, he became involved with the community by networking with various agencies to discuss the idea of mentoring in the City of Elizabeth. He, then, realized that there were many worthwhile youth programs, but none of which focused on the mentoring aspect.
