Adam Dembo and Falio Labya-Martinez, students in a Spring semester course entitled Camden and the Region taught by Center Director Paul Jargowsky, wrote in a recent email:

Professor Jargowsky,

I just wanted to thank you for inspiring Falio and I to create our civic engagement project. We did another cleanup on on May 18th at the other park in Centerville located on 7th and Ferry Ave. We are also thinking about setting up a non-profit group to revitalize all the basketball courts in Camden. With a budget less than $200 we were able to make a significant impact on two courts and parks.  Hopefully in your future classes we can get some other urban studies students involved and continue the project.Thanks again for the inspiration.
