Recognizing students who make life better for others by volunteering

For more than 20 years, Nancy & Robert Eskow NCJW/Essex Volunteer Awards (Eskow Award) have recognized graduating seniors who demonstrate their commitment to making life better for others by volunteering, through either community service or advocacy. NCJW/Essex is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Eskow Award winners reflect and support NCJW/Essex’s mission of improving the lives of women, children and families by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms. This is a non-sectarian award and we encourage all to apply.
