Hopeworks ‘N Camden Visit

Jay Appleton and Grayling Johnson had the privilege of visiting with the good folks at Hopeworks ‘N Camden.  This was a a great learning experience and quite impressive to see the emphasis on training and mentoring marketable tech job skills. They chatted with the young people about what’s happening in Camden these days, and their perceptions related to the future of the City.  It was great to hear afterward from the Executive Director, Dan Rhoton, that one of the young men said “Talking to those guys makes me believe that there will be a place in “new Camden” for me, too.”

What’s important is that “new Camden” is going to be a success exactly because of organizations like Hopeworks and, especially, because of the local people who are dedicated to making a difference.
