  MyCom: My Commitment, My Community

 A public-private partnership dedicated to connecting youth to caring adults and positive options in a safe environment.

 

Greetings!      

 

Don't miss this opportunity for youth who want a voice.
 
Encourage youth to apply for the MyMedia reporter training being offered through the MyCom network. They'll get the scoop on telling stories and reporting neighborhood news that matters to young people. They will learn journalism and digital media skills through blogs, podcasts, video broadcasts, and writing.
 
Selected youth reporters will commit to a 7-week training program that will expose them to new information, ideas, and local experts in the world of media.
 
This opportunity is for young people (ages 12-17) who are:
 
  • residents of Cuyahoga County;
  • ready to be youth leaders, and become a voice for their community!

 

Visit MyCom.net for an application kit. Complete and return the application by April 5, 2013.
