GAAH Press Club - Officially Published!

The Cook Arts Center Press Club has officially been published on The Rapidian! Our first group of junior reporters has been learning a lot since the Press Club started in February, such as how to prepare questions for an interview and how to tell the difference between fact and opinion. Personal bios were also created by the junior reporters in order to introduce themselves to Rapidian readers, and can be found here, along with their first complete interview:

The Press Club at the Cook Arts Center was created in order to provide youth in the Grandville Avenue neighborhood with the opportunity to find, develop and share their creative voices. Being a member of the Press Club not only empowers youth by helping them develop their sense of self, but also encourages them to become creative problem solvers, enhance communication skills and increase their chances of continuing on to higher education. Through the Press Club, neighborhood youth also have the unique ability to raise awareness about the things that matter to them.

Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities administers the programs of the Cook Arts Center.
