COURT HOUSE – School Based Youth Services program located at the Cape May County Technical High School is announcing the 4th Annual Pride Day at the Zoo for local high school students from New Jersey’s southern counties.
The event is scheduled to take place May 11 from 3-7 p.m. The event has been coordinated to support and connect local LGBTQIA&A youth in a safe and drug free environment.
