Central Ward Newark Councilman,  Darrin S. Sharif, recently launched the Youth Ambassador program this summer. It’s a FREE weekly summer program that provides personal development and enrichment for Newark area high school students  from July 2- August 27, 2013.  We are currently accepting applications all week from students here, along with their recommendations from teacher’s here.
