The Edgewood Village Scholars Program Would Make Margaret Mead Smile

Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

An example is the Edgewood Village Scholars Program, which demonstrates how citizen resolve can level the field for children from limited-resource families. What’s more, the program is a shining example of community development.

Founder John Duley and two collaborators–Donna Kaplowitz and John Melcher–talk about the program, including what it is, how it started, how it functions, and what it has accomplished.
