The U.S. Navy is preparing to bring a Navy Week to Trenton, N.J. during the week of May 2-8, as the fourth Navy Week of the calendar year.
If health conditions permit, the Navy will conduct education and community outreach throughout Trenton and the surrounding communities.
Trenton Navy Week will bring between 50 and 75 Sailors from across the nation to volunteer throughout the community and discuss why the Navy matters to Trenton.
A virtual Navy Week was previously held in Trenton in 2020.

Navy Expeditionary Combat Command
Educational STEM presentations and fitness demonstrations by technicians, medics, and divers.
U.S. Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command
An educational presentation on the importance of atmospheric and oceanographic science and the overall value of STEM education to the Navy.
(Learn More. Meteorology and Oceanography encompass every natural law that dictates the Navy’s every move. At sea, we are victims of the environments we place ourselves in. That’s why we need meteorologists and oceanographers to inform us of weather patterns, prepare comprehensive maps, and watch over Aerographer’s Mates who forecast the weather. Every airstrike needs to know which way the wind is blowing and every submarine needs to account for currents when they’re underway. Whether you’re stationed on a ship or conducting research in one of our top-of-the-line labs, Navy METOCs give technical and tactical advice daily.

Every Sailor selected to participate in Trenton Navy Week, except those with an approved waiver for health or religious reasons, will be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Furthermore, the Navy Office of Community Outreach will work closely with community partners in Trenton and follow guidance from public health officials.
Navy Weeks are the service’s signature outreach program, designed to allow the citizens of Trenton to learn about the Navy, its people, and its importance to national security and prosperity.
The Navy Office of Community Outreach (NAVCO) coordinates Navy Weeks.

“We are very excited to bring Navy Week to Trenton,” said NAVCO’s director, Cmdr. John Fage.
“Navy Weeks give us the opportunity to help connect Americans to their Navy.”
“We are looking forward to safely and responsibly building those connections in the Trenton area and showing everyone why their Navy is so important.”
Since 2005, the Navy Week program has served as the Navy’s flagship outreach effort to regions without a significant Navy presence, with over 250 Navy Weeks held in more than 80 different U.S. markets.
“We coordinate about 75 outreach events during a Navy Week,” added NAVCO Navy Week program manager Lt. Cmdr. Kevin Chambers.
“Outreach events range from corporate, civic, government, education, media, veterans, community service engagements.”

With more than 90 percent of all trade traveling by sea, and 95 percent of the world’s international phone and internet traffic carried through fiber optic cables lying on the ocean floor, Navy officials continue to emphasize that the prosperity and security of the United States is directly linked to a strong and ready Navy.
Thank you for coming out to support the men and women who maintain America’s advantage at sea.

In the days that followed 9/11, the critical needs of protecting our country catapulted us into new and innovative ways to secure our homeland – which is how many of the agencies and enterprise organizations that are today ‘ASTORS’ Awards Champions, came into being.
Our keynote speaker featured a moving and informative address from TSA Administrator and Vice-Admiral of the United States Coast Guard (Ret), David Pekoske; to our attendees who traveled from across the United States and abroad, on the strategic priorities of the 64,000 member TSA workforce in securing the transportation system, enabling safe, and in many cases, contactless travel.
Legendary Police Commissioner William Bratton of the New York Police Department, the Boston Police Department, and former Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department was also live at the event, meeting with attendees and signing copies of his latest work ‘The Profession: A Memoir of Community, Race, and the Arc of Policing in America,’ courtesy of the generosity of our 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Premier Sponsors.
