The Rutgers University Academic Foundation Center (AFC) sent their eager and capable faculty and student volunteer teams to build with Habitat for Humanity Newark in 2014, thanks to the leadership of Upward Bound Director, Yanett Salazar Bagce, and Senior Counselor, Carl Milton. AFC’s mission is to provide underrepresented students with academic opportunities, resources, and support programs so they can accomplish their educational goals and achieve success beyond the classroom. Habitat Newark is proud to be a partner in this academic support program, and we look forward to future opportunities to work with the Rutgers AFC students, faculty, and staff.
