The Camden Youth Success Center hosted another successful Career Fair on Friday, March 31st, with 15 local employers and more than 100 job seekers! Despite rainy weather, youth came out to explore potential jobs, practice meeting with employers, and learn more. Prior to the Career Fair, several dozen Youth Success Center participants and those from partnering organizations attended two Job Readiness workshops to help them prepare. Many thanks to the participating and returning employers who make these events possible, and to the Youth Success Center team
that planned the Career Fair, including Steven Hardwick II, and this year's Social Work
interns, Ashley Gleason, Naombi Starling, and Frank Brown.

This year, the high school equivalency training program in Newark has seen some of our greatest academic success rates to date. Despite increases in the difficulty of the test of high school equivalency in recent years, including the shift to an entirely computer-based exam, Rutgers T.E.E.M. Gateway students are proving their diligence to overcome obstacles and reach their goals. Since the inception of the Project Rise pilot program in Newark, now more than 100 students have earned their high school diploma during their time with us.
