A "Zine" Graduation
Surrounded by friends,
staff, counselors and former students of the program, three young adults
graduated from an eight-week, creative writing internship where they learned
essential skills for obtaining and maintaining employment. They presented their final handmade
“Zines” (mini-magazines) to an audience before receiving their graduation
Carleigh, dressed in
character, shared her comic book series about “Pizza Guy” and her plans to
continue the comic series online. Symphany read one of her personal reflections
from her collection of poetry. She plans to continue her writing
post-graduation. Finally, Adam read an excerpt from his short story about a
post-apocalyptic world. He plans to further his studies to become either an
engineer or author. We
congratulate these very talented and dedicated students!
Zine Project is imbedded in CCS’ University District
Youth Center (UDYC) program where they provide essential services to homeless, at risk, runaway and/or
street involved youth ages 13-22. Read more about how UDYC is
making a difference here.

future, please consider leaving CCS or CHS in your will. Explore how.
