Thank you for your interest in joining Team AJE. In 1996 AJE was created to increase parental involvement in the education of children. AJE uses a parent empowerment model to address educational inequities in the District of Columbia, including school exclusion, unequal access to programs and services, and uneven implementation of local and federal education laws. We strive to address injustices caused by the failure to provide appropriate educational options for all children. AJE’s mission is to empower families, youth, and the community to be effective advocates to ensure that children and youth – particularly those with disabilities – receive access to appropriate education and health services.
