The Collinwood Recreation Center has been hosting a new digital media program for teens! The particpants learn broadcasting and communication skills, along with those skills, they learned how to launch a radio show to be broadcast over the internet. The youth, ages 12-17 created a radio news program called, "The Forum." Each week the teens discuss one of the top ten issues that affect their lives including topics such as bullying, teen violence, peer pressure, human trafficking and drugs. The teens provided a unique insight and perspective on these issues. They became citizen journalists, by writing, producing and recording the topics that were covered. The program was created by Institutional Community Development Corporation, in partnership with FCB Musera Entertainment, who provided the technical assistance and instructor. Shirellda Terry and Alexis Nunn had an opportunity to interview Councilman Michael Polensek of Ward 11. This interview will be seen on YouTube in the near future. The classes are held at the recreation center on Wednesdays at 5:00pm to 6:30pm. For more information, contact Darece Daniels at 216-812-6954.
