A "Zine" Graduation 

UDYC Zine Project Graduates

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 diplomas.

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!

This 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.
