Educational Justice Activists



An EJ Activist is a high school student who is service-minded and who possesses exceptional academic abilities. EJ Activists strive to use their exceptional academic talents to enrich the community. An EJ Activist provides additional scholastic assistance to struggling middle school students whose families lack the financial resources to obtain such support. Academically-accomplished students who have a service-hours requirement often decide to put that time to use by becoming an EJ Activist. They are then able to use their academic expertise to make a significant difference in a younger student’s life by serving as his or her dedicated tutor and academic guide. View high schools represented.
