UrbanPromise Academy Students engage in cultural exchange with students from Clearview Regional High School. For the fourth year in a row, students from Clearview Regional High School in Mullica Hill, NJ made the annual trip to UrbanPromise in Camden for a day of education and cultural exchange with Camden teens who attend the UrbanPromise Academy high school.
46 students from Ms. Jennifer Satterfield's Humanitarian Studies class at Clearview arrived at UrbanPromise in the morning of December 20th. Mr. Andy Joshua, Director of Children's Ministries at UrbanPromise, led the students on a tour of Camden to discuss the history of Camden and enlighten Clearview students to the socioeconomic issues facing Camden teens.
Clearview students engaged in a Q&A session with one of UrbanPromise's AfterSchool Program directors, Albert Vega, who grew up in Camden and attended Camden High School.
Upon return to the UrbanPromise main campus Clearview Students had lunch with UrbanPromise Academy (9-12th grade) students, and engage in discussions and various activities led by Principal Demetrius Marlowe.
UrbanPromise Academy students look forward to spending a day at Clearview Regional High School in the spring.
