About Building Bright Futures
We need your help!
During this pandemic, we have still been reaching out to our CASA Teens. We visited them and they enjoyed the gift cards, masks, and treats that we delivered. We are also meeting with our seniors to help prepare them for that 'next step' in life- either college, trade school, or employment. While the pandemic has continued on, so have we and our efforts to provide opportunities for our CASA Teens. Your donation will help us provide opportunities for a bright future for our teens.
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. 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.
