About Facing History's Partnership with Radio Rookies
Thanks to a grant from the MacArthur Foundation, Facing History and Ourselves has partnered with New York Public Radio's "Radio Rookies" to begin a new initiative that will link two New York City schools, Vanguard High School in Manhattan and the High School for Global Citizenship in Crown Heights, with the radio program, which provides teenagers with the tools and training to create radio stories about themselves, their communities, and their world. The collaboration is part of the new HIVE Learning Network NYC, which connects educators of cultural and learning institutions. The initiative helps teachers and administrators conceive of and create programs that integrate their areas of specialty with creative, digital projects.
