END DATE: May 18, 2012 LOCATIONS: All program components will be held at all 16 community recreation centers. Note: Studio and internet radio will be held at Eastdale Community Center, and PYD Services Facility.

DESCRIPTION: The mission of The Listen Up!!! Program is to give young people a forum to have open dialogue about issues concerning them. By providing multi-media access, we give teens the opportunity to express themselves to the masses. The Chattanooga Parks and Recreation Prevention and Youth Development Services The Youth Development Services framework is an approach to working with young people that encompasses four things: it is designed to meet the developmental needs of youth, builds on their assets and potential, views young people as resources and builds partnerships with youth to create positive and substantial change. Youth Development Services derived from common theories and approaches that strive to build a core set of skills, characteristics and competencies on the individual as well as the organizational level that are needed to provide support and opportunities for all young people. By nature this framework is multi-faceted. No one person, institution or organization acting alone can ensure that all youth acquire the assets, skills and support that they need to succeed. It takes all of us working toward common goals and adhering to the common principles of youth development to make this happen.

Teens Too!

PROGRAM COMPONENTS: “Studio 101” Recording Studio “WE DO HAVE A VOICE: Internet Radio Station “Clear Visionz” Graphics and Web Designs “Clear Visionz HD” Video Editing

Listen Up!

STARTING DATE: September 5, 2011 ENDING DATE: May 18, 2012 LOCATIONS: Programs will be held at all 16 community recreation centers. DESCRIPTION: For much too long youth in this city have been looking for voice - that one voice and that one opinion that will get the attention of the Chattanooga area and their local recreation center. Times have changed and so has our society, teens are becoming more rebellious because we, as a city, are so quick to build more jails than to build better programs that are going to empower young people. We strongly believe that this will not only give youth in this city a voice but they will be able to enter into a working environment. They will know how to act in a work place; this program will mold the young minds for a better future. Also a strong educational factor would be put in place to ensure that along with having fun they also learn life skills.
