As part of a 12-week Creative Arts program focused on radio broadcasting, Propel Northside fifth graders identified social issues that concerned them. They started by talking about things they liked, and things they would change, about their neighborhoods:

They then researched, wrote and recorded the public service announcements below to promote organizations working to address their issues.  This project was designed to expose students to people making a difference, career opportunities focused on helping people, and the power of clear writing and speaking as a means of conveying information to others.
