Joel Bridger's Profile
Joel, from Chesapeake, Virginia, moved to Philadelphia in 2009 to partcipate in an inner city education student mentor program, City Year, Fell in love with Philly and decided to stay for awhile.
How did I find out about City Year? A random message from a good friend on Facebook at the right time in my life; I made the biggest commitment in my life based on passion rather than Career Fields, Money, and Fame.
I met and saw a lot of very positive and enlightening people and things that year in my life. I also saw a lot of smoke and mirrors in the philosophies of our education system here in America and seemingly many other places. I also noticed what the neglect of a community can lead to: poverty; reliance on a public education system to educate their youth out of poverty...
