The Boys & Girls Club of San Bernardino in collaboration with OneNation Media Services is pleased to announce the launch of What’s Up?, a new teen magazine serving youth in the Inland Empire Riverside/San Bernardino Counties. The magazine features articles written by and about youth living in the Inland Empire community and covers various topics, including fashion, politics, music reviews, and interviews with local elected officials.
“It is with great pride and a tremendous spirit of optimism, that I celebrate this inaugural edition”, said A. Majadi, president and chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Club. “This publication makes possible the opportunity for our youth to share their thoughts and perspectives on issues directly related to their individual and collective growth and development,” said Majadi.
Area youth interested in writing for the magazine do not need prior experience however they must participate in Journalism Boot Camp, a 10-week writing and journalism program administered by OneNation Media Services. The extra-curricular workshop focuses on providing youth with hands-on training in print journalism, photography, and radio and television production. Participating youth are taught the basic principles of news gathering, writing and editing.
“We’re pleased to partner with the Boys & Girls Club to bring this learning opportunity to area youth,” said Sheri Stuart, executive director of OneNation Media Services. “We’re dedicated to providing youth with the highest level of journalism education and training in a safe and nurturing environment,” said Stuart.
Printed copies of the magazine will be distributed to area middle and high schools and will also be available at local libraries.
The magazine will be unveiled during a special program at the Boys & Girls Club on Saturday, May 30.
The program will begin at 2:00 p.m. and will include an awards ceremony, entertainment by local youth, and refreshments. The public is invited.
