AZYEP executive director Beth Wysong has initiated a community-wide project in recognition of April as National Poetry Month. She gave details and shared examples with KDNK's Raleigh Burleigh on Express Yourself.
On this edition of the Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment Program News Team, Coordinator Adele Craft turns the tables on the students and interviews them. We hear about their lives, their passions, and what they do for fun. The mission of AZYEP is to empower youth from diverse backgrounds to express themselves, build self-confidence, and develop leadership skills through community broadcasting. Hear our archives here.
