Foundation Academies is looking for 100 positive male role models from the community including fathers, leaders, servicemen, artists, and beyond, to cheer students on as they enter Foundation Academies’ school buildings on their 100th day.

This year’s “100 Man Welcome,” co-sponsored by The Father Center of New Jersey, will take place on January 26th, 2022. There will be two opportunities for volunteers to greet students including during the morning welcome at the 22 Grand St. High School location from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. and during the afternoon parade for grades K-8 at 363 West State St. from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

This year, the 100 Man Welcome will be socially-distanced and no-contact in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines. Instead of high-fives, they will welcome all volunteers to create a motivational sign (materials provided) to cheer its students on. If you are unable to participate in person due to COVID-19, they also have alternative ways you can engage including dropping off a sign or submitting a quick video greeting HERE.
