Earlier this year, in response to the murder of George Floyd, People’s Prep students, lead by our Voyage Honors Program, started a fundraiser to support a local organization working in social justice. Through t-shirt sales, our students raised $1,000 and chose the United Way of Newark as the recipient.
We recently hosted a virtual check presentation and shared powerful moments with CEO, Catherine Wilson. Please take a moment to watch the recording of the presentation. It is especially impactful at minute 6 as student, Kenslover, shares the inspiration behind the fundraiser.
This was a special moment for our students and staff, and we are proud to share it with you.
