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.

Our Gem Project creative development/ marketing intern Adebunmi Gbadebo and several organizations and schools are currently working with them.
