In Spring 2009, eighteen third, fourth and fifth graders from Pittsburgh Lincoln and Pittsburgh Stevens (Pittsburgh Public Schools) took part in It’s Cool to Care, a creative project designed to expose young girls to the career opportunities focused on helping others, tools for good decision-making, audio technology, and verbal literacy.
These students participated in a process during which they explored social issues through (1) a community meeting in which they determined and ranked issues that mattered to them, (2) research about organizations and people working to address these issues, and (3) a series of hands-on youth radio workshops that guided girls through the process of researching, writing and voicing Public Service Announcements (PSAs) to be broadcast on the radio.
Below are the 23 PSAs that these students produced during this project.
