Categories: Press Release

PRINCETON, NJ– YWCA Princeton is eager and proud to host its 15th Annual ETS Firecracker 5K on June 25th at 7:00 PM at ETS, located at 660 Rosedale Road in Princeton. All proceeds benefit YWCA Princeton’s Bilingual Nursery School, which provides bilingual education to preschool children so that they are on-par with their peers and ready for kindergarten.

“ETS is honored once again to support the 5K Firecracker,” shared Lenora Green, Executive Director of the ETS Center for Advocacy and Philanthropy. “This annual event is one which the ETS staff always looks forward to participating in because it is a great way to bring the community together to support a very worthy cause. Through our sponsorship, we are able to support the Bilingual Nursery school which is aligned with ETS’s mission of advancing quality and equity in education for all. We believe it is critical that our early learners have a strong start.”

The students enrolled in the Bilingual Nursery School make up one third of the total number of students in the Young Wonders Child Development Center. Children ages 2 and ½ to 5 years old can be enrolled in the Bilingual Nursery School.

 “Our Bilingual Nursery School reflects the need in the Princeton area to expose children to multiple languages and embrace diversity,” said YWCA Princeton CEO Judy Hutton. “ETS has always been a fantastic partner and it’s great to collaborate with an organization that identifies with our mission.”
