SRTM’s vision is to build a society of socially aware, responsible, and active adults that care about their community, participate in issues that affect their neighborhoods, and become the next generation of educated leaders.
SRTM aims to equip its participants with the tools to truly harness their potential to organize and affect change at the local level.
The amalgamation of community connectedness and youth organizing – SRTM empowers students to have the skill set, capacity, and network to be active participants in the Camden community. Our goal is to set the foundation for a lifetime of civic engagement to students who would otherwise have no access to this realm of knowledge.
SRTM wants to incorporate organizing, action, service, and reflection so that students are constantly aware of their contributions and the importance of giving back.
SRTM strives to ensure that all the youth participating in its programs learn, understand, and engage with the community they live in.
SRTM’s work is highly dependent on an extensive network of and collaboration with organizations, nonprofits, and resources that are available to help us advance our work, as well as providing our students with a diverse array of positive outlets. By connecting our students with the connections we have as an organization we are truly expanding our reach, impact, and helping to develop Camden as a community.
