About Building Bright Futures
Only 64.2%* of people in Camden have a high school diploma and only 7.6%* have a bachelor’s degree or higher. But at CASA, we’re working hard to increase those numbers. So far, our students have a 100% high school graduation rate! Our teens are committed to achieving success. In turn, we offer life-changing experiences to them—ones they wouldn’t have otherwise. Through CASA, teens have access to after school programs five days a week, including life skills, tutoring, SAT Prep, College Access, career planning, youth meetings, and much more. Together, we’re helping teens break the cycle of poverty in their families and in Camden—their futures are bright. Join us Sunday, November 3 from 1 to 5 p.m. at Paddy Whacks Pub in Philadelphia and help build bright futures. This annual fundraiser supports Community Adolescents Striving for Achievement (CASA) in Camden, NJ—a youth development program aimed at helping Camden’s youth achieve success in their education and lives.
