CRY New Jersey is an active national action center 100% run by students.

Along with their extremely busy high school lives at the top high schools in the nation, the students run this action center wholeheartedly. CRY is not just an organization for them. It’s a child that they nurture, love, cherish, and keep close to their hearts. While spreading awareness for the issues of the CRY, the students think of out of the box ways to incorporate new outreach methods and event ideas.

CRY New Jersey has outreached not only through nationwide magazines with 15,000 subscribers, local radio stations, and state universities, but CRY NJ has also outreached through international organizations like the United Nations at the United Nations Headquarters in NYC. In addition to innovative outreach, CRY NJ creates unique events like Teen Dance Nights and the annual CRY NJ Derby, which turn out successful. CRY NJ excels in not only spreading awareness through the 14 high school clubs CRY NJ has established throughout the state of NJ, but also excels in raising money for the cause, supporting the children who need it most. We are passionate about the cause, dedicated to our purpose, and successful in accomplishing our goals.
