The students that the Gaspari’s spoke to are in a twelve-week program from May to August that offers an alternative to recipients of the New Jersey Foster Care (NJFC) scholarship who lack the financial, family and social connections to secure safe and stable housing during the summer months. 40 New Jersey Foster Scholars are given the opportunity to receive quality housing (at either Rutgers' Camden, New Brunswick, and Newark campuses, or Montclair State University) and paid internship positions throughout the summer months. SHIP also offers a 3-credit course, counseling, weekly workshops, and recreational activities.
Liz Gaspari also brought the students give away products such as draw string bags, shaker bottles, protein powder packets and pens. All of the students were so grateful and happy that the Gaspari’s were able to come in and speak to them about pursuing young entrepreneurship. Students left the board room inspired, excited and ready to take on the world with their future endeavors.
