The Center for Future Educators (CFE) at the College of New Jersey is a focused, organized, grassroots campaign designed to usher in a new era in the field of teaching. It offers a unique vision for the recruitment and development of middle school and high school students. These future educators, in the capacities of scholars, leaders, and social entrepreneurs, will help to shape New Jersey’s communities. As such, they must have rich and varied opportunities to prepare for this reimagined role – a role that will bolster the image of the teaching profession across the state.


RADIATE is a two-part initiative designed for 11th grade young men of color who are interested in pursuing careers as educators. During RADIATE Mentoring, students experience five months of personalized, 1-on-1 mentorship with education professionals. During these first five weeks, students also take part in the RADIATE Academy, an intensive program that provides mentees with knowledge and tools to better prepare them for college life and future careers in teaching.

If you are interested in joining RADIATE as a mentee or mentor or know someone who may be a great fit for the program, refer to the links below! For any questions, please contact us at
