Newark Riverfront Revival was proud to partner with Newark based Cobblestone Multimedia in the creation of our first ever Youth Apprenticeship Program this past Summer 2015.
In partnership with the Newark Works Youth Program, NRR/Cobblestone Multimedia employed 12 city youth, who spent 5 weeks at Newark Riverfront Park learning about the ecology of the Passaic River, Park Stewardship, Arts and Culture Programming, and Multimedia Skills. Apprentices spent time working with partner organizations such as the Newark Office of Film + Television, the city’s Government Access channel NWK TV, and Panasonic to get greater insight and experience on the types of multimedia arts careers they can build in the city of Newark.
The project culminated in a video created by our apprentices in which they applied the multimedia skills that they learned to highlight Newark Riverfront Park programming and issues around the environment of Riverfront Park.
Congratulations to our apprentices for all of their hard work and enthusiasm. Check out the results of their work and feel free to share on social media in celebration of Newark youth!
