Announcing the Educate-Innovate Initiative, a “Your Campaign” funded by multi-million dollar private donation that aims to build Innovation Labs, Maker Space facilities and Technology Enhancements in partnership with local public schools in USA. AJ plans to sponsor an Innovation lab for one High School each year. In addition, Maker Spaces in 3 Elementary Schools and a Technology refresh in 1 Middle school that feed into the selected High School. This is to foster an ecosystem of early adopters and innovators. 

This campaign builds on AJ’s core belief of uplifting the underprivileged by providing access to education and healthcare, and takes it to the next level by empowering next generation of innovators by providing them access to state of the art technology.

The criteria for local schools (High, Middle and Elementary) to qualify are:
1) should be located within 25 miles of AJ Run/Walk location
2) has >= 10% underprivileged kids in the school

Evaluation Criteria :

  1. At least 10 registrants participation from the school in AJ 5K Event
