The New Jersey Arts Education Partnership was created to be the unified voice for arts education, established in 2007 following years of planning and input by arts and education leaders statewide. The organization was originally founded in 2007 as a co-sponsored program of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, with additional support from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, New Jersey Department of Education and Music for All Foundation. On July 1, 2015, NJAEP became an independent non-profit organization.

The core beliefs that shaped Partnership’s beginning remain the same today:

a) Arts Education is essential to basic knowledge and a fundamental right of every citizen in our schools and across our communities, and

b) The collective voice of diverse stakeholders is the most effective means for advancing the arts in education.

The mission of the NJAEP is to provide a unified voice for a diverse group of constituents who agree on the educational benefits and impact of the arts, specifically the contribution they make to student achievement and a civilized, sustainable society.

Launched in conjunction with the release of the first-ever Arts Education Census Report, the Partnership’s first task was to focus on carrying out the recommendations of the Report.  To date, the efforts of NJAEP have led to increased access to arts education for more than 75,000 students.
