JM Sorge is a contributing supporter of the New Jersey Land Conservation Rally. The Rally is a statewide conservation training event. Attendees include a diverse community that works to protect threatened natural areas and farmland through land acquisition and stewardship. The community includes land conservation nonprofits, state agencies, county and municipal governments, private companies, the federal government and other organizations. The Rally provides an opportunity for the conservation community to dialogue about strategies to promote strong New Jersey land use policies and to forge partnerships to help safeguard water and other natural resources. JMS’ contributions help bring workshops, educational sessions and networking opportunities to rally attendees.
JMS supports the KIPP New Jersey’s annual Be The Change Celebration. These events raise funding for multiple objectives, such as supporting Life and Revolution Academies, serving a greater number of students, constructing new classrooms, and sending more students to college. KIPP is dedicated to ensuring students’ academic growth and college goals. Peter Sorge, President at JM Sorge, also visited with 10th grade students at the TEAM Newark Collegiate Academy (NCA) High School. Peter shared his own journey with the students, discussing his path from high school to college to his current career. In this way, Peter was able to share the value of going to college and explain the connection between majors and careers. Visit http://kippnj.org/schools/team-academy/ for more information.
