Manhattanville Reid Castle In the Spring

Students with the Duchesne Center visit the Romero Center in New Jersey
The Duchesne Center took a group of students to the Romero Center in Camden, New Jersey, during Spring Break. The importance of the trip was to show how poverty is still a drastic problem domestically. Students were assigned to various tasks throughout the week.

"Service learning trips always have a huge impact on our students as the Manhattanville community becomes more aware of the importance of community service and how one person can make a difference," said Craig Donnelly of the Duchesne Center.

Like most American cities, Camden began to suffer from the decline of the manufacturing industry. Hard-hit by decades of plant closures and fiscal mismanagement by the city's government, today Camden is most well-known for its poverty, crime, and dysfunction.
