The Summer Youth Program, COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS, offers a unique combination of scholastic development and hands-on video production. School teachers bridge one academic year to the next, working with participants to develop Math and Language Arts skills for MCAS tests. WCCA Staff then offer training for script writing, storyboarding, filming, and video editing, which offers the students a dynamic creative outlet. These students also get to CONNECT with community and business leaders by interviewing them and hearing their stories. COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS supports team-building skills, democratic participation, and even English Language Learning for students from diverse backgrounds.
We at WCCA love offering this innovative program, and the opportunity it creates for Worcester youth. Sadly, we have recently learned that our financial support for this program has been lost due to a partnering organization’s budget cuts. We need your help. Without additional funds, WCCA will be unable to take on the costs of this fun, enriching, and successful program.
Please consider gifting your tax refund to WCCA, so that we may continue providing the Worcester community with the educational, social, expressive, and technological resources that its members need and deserve. Thank you from all of us at Worcester Community Cable Access Television. We appreciate your support!
