The Communicator's Newspaper Mentoring Program was designed to give Inner-city Youth and Communities an opportunity to become engaged in the Newspaper Industry.

The Mentoring Program will design a full page Ad called the RAVE inside the Columbus Communicator Newspaper. This Ad will allow students to submit articles to bring awareness to social issues and community concerns. It will also provide a means for Local Businesses to advertise and support their community.

Those students who participate in the program will receive the opportunity to:

  • Network with experts in the Newspaper industry;
  • Work with Advertising Agencies;
  • Connect with individuals and business in their communities;
  • Become commissioned salespersons through the sonication of business Ads.

Our Success

The Columbus Communicator Newspaper Mentoring Program is currently working with the Linden McKinley STEM Academy. We have connected with an English Teacher and the School’s Writing Club to begin designing the first issue of THE RAVE.

Students were given assignments such as: “How Profanity Affects Everyone”, and “What’s You’re Genre of Music”.

As quoted from the LM STEM Academy Teacher, “The collaboration helps give the opportunity to connect the school with the community as well as increase students' ability to be successful. The more students are able to see their empowerment, the more likely they are to move forward.”

The following student's from Linden McKinley STEM Academy participated in the Jack Harris - Newspaper Mentoring Program in the Spring of 2016. They created articles for the THE RAVE to showcase their talents.
