Youth in Community Researchers Project are Writing Books

aquinasGood things are happening at Aquinas Center with youth and education! In a recent article on the University of Pennsylvania  website, a reporter shared:

Students at the Aquinas Center, a Catholic organization serving South Philadelphia’s culturally and linguistically diverse populations, are learning how to ask critical questions about issues important to them thanks to Microgiving @ Penn GSE, a community-focused crowdfunding initiative. Last year, Dr. Gerald Campano and Reading/Writing/Literacy students Lan Ngo, David Low, Grace Player, and Christine Ong raised money to purchase several award-winning nonfiction books for the Center through a Microgiving @ Penn GSE campaign. Campano and his team are using the books to demonstrate the power of asking – and answering – questions.”
