The Early Excellence Broadcasting and journalism program is set up to prepare youth to become community reporters equipped with the skills to go out into their own neighborhoods and discover the positive stories that normally do not get the attention they deserve in the mainstream news. We offer teenagers the opportunity to publish their creative work and opinions on the issues that affect their lives, their communities, and their futures. Teens have the freedom to write about everything from success stories, job opportunities, college planning and community service. We believe that telling positiive stories creates a positive environment in which young people can thrive. Our hope is that these feel-good stories encourage not only other teens, but everyone in the community to be the best they possibly can.
