Local online magazine coming from student project
For the past six months students from Berkeley Springs High School in collaboration with Morgan County Partnership have been working to create an online magazine called The WV Zine.
This site is dedicated to providing the residents of Morgan County with information regarding school and community activities. Many of the activities are directed toward teens, and young adults but it also acts as a clearinghouse for parents.
The site will also be a resource for local businesses and community groups who wish to utilize the site to promote their product or service.
The program focuses on youth utilizing and enhancing their journalism and creative writing skills as well as their website design and technology skills.
In addition, it provides opportunities for youth to learn from community members and organizations.
Due to the youth-driven format of the program, career development skills will be developed through various leadership roles and project responsibilities.
If you are a local teen or adult who is interested in learning more about how to get involved with the WV Zine After school program, or someone who is looking for more information about the site, contact the Morgan County Partnership at 304-258-7807.
