Operating Status

COVID-19 Update

Federal and state social distancing measures are becoming more expansive and prolonged to control the community spread of COVID-19. Rutgers T.E.E.M Gateway is embedded in communities across our state, and we are doing our part to address this deepening public health crisis.

In line with current university policy recently outlined by President Barchi, all in-person events, classes, programs, club meetings, and other group activities organized by or under the auspices of Rutgers Cooperative Extension are suspended through at least August 14, 2020.

Rutgers University remains open and operational, and every effort is being made to move programs into remote education formats and to develop innovative ways of engaging those who we serve.

  • The Camden Youth Success Center team is working remotely; contact individual staff members as needed, or reach the team at youthsuccess.camden@rutgers.edu for all general inquiries.
