Trainer Application

The Minority Leadership Training Cadre, a statewide peer to-peer training program for ethnic-minority members, is a key component in the delivery of skills training to prospective Association leaders. The cadre provides skills training to members at state, county, and local NJEA training events, seminars, and conferences.

We are particularly seeking ethnic-minority members – American Indian/Alaska Native, Black, Hispanic, Asian and Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders – to serve on the cadre.

Cadre members serve a three-year term.

Cadre members are not paid for their services. They are, however, reimbursed for travel-related expenses. NJEA does not reimburse salary.
