Camden Students to Participate in Latino Youth Leadership Program

By Efrain Nieves

Three Camden, NJ students will be attending the 2013 Ready To Lead Next Generation, or R2L NextGen.

“During the the week-long program, the students will learn the importance of their role as engaged citizens and how they can affect positive change in their communities and their nation, according to a news release from the office of U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Chairman of the Senate Democratic Hispanic Task Force. The students will also meet with Latino leaders and visit historic sites.” http://www.philly.com

Congratulations to them. We hope that the program inspires them to continue to excel academically in order to, eventually, succeed in their chosen career paths. Pa’lante!
