STUDENT NEWS NETWORK LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS WITH JOURNALISM SKILLS--UPDATE STOP & SHOP
Release Date: February 13, 2012

On Wednesday, March 7 at 4:15 PM the town will inaugurate the 2nd year of our student news network program for students.  The age group of our student participants: middle school and high school.  The location: Greenburgh Town Hall, 177 Hillside Ave, White Plains.

 

We’re looking for volunteer instructors who have media experience. The volunteers would meet with the students and teach them about journalism, interview skills, research and help them produce a news program –which will be aired on public access TV and presented to the Town Board. The program will run 8 weeks.  Volunteers can help for as little as two hours since the students will be meeting weekly for 8 weeks.

 

Graduates will receive certificates of appreciation from the Town Board at a Town Board meeting.  Judith Beville, who is coordinating the program, has been in touch with the Jacobs Burn Film Center. They have offered a visit to their media arts lab and/or theater for students to participate in a workshop called the art of the interview.

If you are interested in volunteering please advise me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com or Town Clerk Judith Beville at jbeville@greenburghny.com. If you are a student and would like to participate in the SNN program please contact either Judith or me.

 

Last year we sponsored a wonderful program and benefitted from the extensive help of Alan Brody of Edgemont.

 

UPDATE: STOP & SHOP – The Stop & Shop supermarket on Tarrytown Road is in the process of receiving a temporary c/o for the purposes of stocking the store and training the store. We anticipate that the supermarket will be open sometime in March.
