Is your teen interested in a career in the media, graphic design, music, video, directing, producing or acting? He or she could get some hands-on experience by helping produce public service announcements for broadcast television/cable, radio and print through a free program sponsored by Triangle Cultural Awareness Foundation and Spectacular Magazine. The fall 2016 program is designed to educate adolescents on the effects the media has on alcohol and substance abuse. This program is free for Durham youth ages 14-18 and is in collaboration with North Carolina Central University's Mass Communications Department, WNCU 90.7 and area professionals of the Triangle Association of Black Journalists.
The program, "The Media Effect: Alcohol and Substance Abuse Awareness Program for Durham County Youth," kicks off with a breakfast 8:30-10:30 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 1, in the North Carolina Central University Student Union. Youth and their parents/guardians are invited to attend. Program participants will meet each Tuesday, 5:30-6:30 p.m., Oct. 11-Dec 13 in the NCCU Farrison-Newton Communications Department. The closing program with PSA Presentations is set for Jan. 10, 2017. For more information and to register, visit this link.
