What's Happening at Cedar Crest College
Criminal Justice Students Learn First-Hand about Delinquent Youth Services
Criminal justice students in Adjunct Professor Paul Werrell’s juvenile justice class at Cedar Crest College recently took a field trip to Glen Mills School, a school for court-referred youths in Glen Mills, PA, where they got a first-hand look at the operations of a facility that houses approximately 750 young men.
"Classroom information and discussion comes alive when you experience what you’ve discussed. At Glen Mills, our students were able to see the opportunities offered to youths at the facility and form their own opinion regarding the rehabilitative and restorative philosophy of the juvenile courts," said Werrell.
Cedar Crest criminal justice students Victoria Sweeney ‘10, Amber Gross ‘10, Abigail Rodgers ’11, and Linda Spear ’12 listen intently as Glen Mills School employee Randy Ireson provides insight into facility operations.
