East Durham Update: The NCDC VOICE

Capitol Broadcasting Co. is supporting this community newspaper and website that's "narrowcasting" to the Northeast Central Durham neighborhood.

VOICE is staffed by teens from the NCDC, and they are mentored by journalism students from UNC-CH and NC Central Univ. Read more about it; click here.

This project has been nurtured by Jock Lauterer, Director of the Carolina Community Media Project at UNC's J-school.

We have UNC and NCCU students working together...with kids from a high poverty the young folks career direction...and creating a sense of community in Northeast Central Durham.

I'm delighted to give VOICE to this excellent collaboration!
