The Creston Neighborhood Association (CNA) is partnering with The Rapidian to host its very own Neighborhood News Bureau. The focus of the news bureau will be showcasing Creston’s youth perspective on social, economic and environmental issues as well as many other interesting topics. The CNA recognizes the importance of ensuring that all those who have ideas about the dynamic and direction of their community be heard. While that is easier for some, others may have difficultly doing so without a platform focused specifically toward their demographic.
CNA’s hope is that with the creation of this news bureau, that platform will be established to facilitate and make public our youth’s perspective on local issues, while at the same time guaranteeing their anonymity as minors. CNA is proud to facilitate a news bureau with its own space within our offices at 205 Carrier street. The space comes complete with research stations, an interview area, and other equipment to complete the journalism process. By providing this highly valued perspective to CNA and its community actors, CNA is proud to give credit toward community service to our youth reporters in fulfilling any academic requirements. CNA’s hope is that we are able to get our news bureau up and running with content by the end of January 2012.
The Creston Neighborhood Association organizes neighborhood residents and resources to promote the social, economic, and environmental health of the Creston Community.
