We have just completed our second season of Fusion Youth Radio! The monthly live radio show featured stories about the school-to-prison pipeline, challenges of high school relationships, and perspectives on faith and politics. FYR continues to train youth to be involved in civic dialogue on their own terms. Listen to our recent episodes here.

Fusion Youth Speak, a middle and high school discussion group, continues to provide a safe place for students to discuss critical youth issues. FYS will continue to meet at the Teen Center throughout the summer with a special focus on local black history.
Our Northside News monthly newsletter is now hand-delivered to over 650 residents monthly by dozens of volunteers. Our newest feature, “Archive Trivia,” has our phone blasting every month with excited voices ready with their trivia answers. Even RD Smith, the 95 year old namesake of Smith Middle School, called in last month. Our column “Ask Keith” continues to provide great community advice. We plan to start an online distribution in August. Read some of our recent issues here.
