What does TPEF do?

TPEF published the children’s book, The Hedgepeth-Williams Story, written by second grade students which tells the story of the historic role their school played in ending segregation in New Jersey public schools through the 1944 NJ Supreme Court decision, Hedgepeth-Williams v. Board of Education, Trenton, NJ.

TPEF is working with the school district, the community and the Westminster College of the Arts at Rider University on a project to ensure that all young children (Grades K-8) have access to a complete, affordable arts education in music, dance, drama, visual and digital/media arts.

With funding from Bristol-Myers Squibb, TPEF, in collaboration with the Trenton School District, is creating a pre-engineering pipeline in after-school clubs

TPEF promotes educational opportunities for the students in the district with a focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and Arts Education.
