We're gearing up for another great summer of chat4change!!!!

We will be kicking off our 2nd annual CHAT4Change on June 22nd at Caven Point Athletic Fields!  This year we expect participation to be even bigger and better!  We can't wait to see all of last year's participants again, and we look forward to meeting so many more of the residents that make Jersey City so great.  Stay tuned for more information on this summer's upcoming CHAT4Change contest!
In the meantime, feel free to check out our photo gallery below to see some of the fun we had last summer.

Thank you again for being a part of our C4C contest,

Welcome to our 2nd annual C.H.A.T. 4 Change Contest!

Interactions with Police Officers and Firefighters do not have to be negative.  In fact, it can be a REWARDING experience.  This summer, Jersey City is launching the first-ever C.H.A.T. 4 Change Contest. The Conversations Help Aid Transformation (C.H.A.T.) initiative encourages Jersey City youth to strike up a conversation with a JCPD officer or JCFD firefighter at designated times and locations. After your CHAT, earn a badge. Collect as many badges as you can to earn prizes and be honored at this summer’s National Night Out in your neighborhood.  

CHAT4ChangeContest: As a reward for engaging a police officer or firefighter, children up to 18 years old can collect badges.  Participants who collect the most badges will win prizes, be honored at your neighborhood National Night Out, and earn the chance to have your picture displayed in City Hall’s Rotunda Art Gallery the month of August. Photographs with first responders will be taken at some events. 

Register: Have a parent register with the city by emailing CHAT4Change@gmail.com.  Please include the participant’s name, age, and address in all emails.  Don’t wait to register… we’ll email you tips on when to find the next badge event.  By August 2nd, send in the number of total badges collected by each participant.   You must also bring all your collected badges to your district’s National Night Out for a final count.  
Don't forget to take pictures, and tag us on social media #CHAT4Change.

*Please note, schedules are subject to change.  Please check back here before attending events.
