The vision of ASAP-NJ is that every young person and family in New Jersey will have access to effective and responsive student assistance coordinators and programs because of ASAP-NJ's advocacy, leadership and expertise.
ASAP-NJ was founded in 1983 to meet the needs of New Jersey youth in education, prevention, intervention, and referral services in areas of high-risk behaviors including the use of alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, and addictive behaviors. A not-for-profit organization, the group is made up of over 300 Student Assistance Professionals (SAP's), Student Assistance Coordinators (SAC's) prevention specialists, educators, and health care professionals.
ASAP-NJ partners with and networks within a wide variety of community services and agencies, promoting a continuum of care and services for all students and families.
