Green Teens: CLE Superheroes
[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFxWhmR5Rq0&feature=youtu.be[/embed] Some of Cleveland's finest youth participated this year in the Mayor Frank G. Jackson Summer Youth Employment Program. "Keeping It Green" is a collaboration of teens working in multiple city departments. Shot by Kayshawn Pillar of Cleveland School of Arts and Thomas Stumpf, and directed by Leanne Jones, William Porch, and Brandon Wade, the video focuses on sustainable lifestyles and creating habits the teens can pass on to their peers. The youth communication videography team also created a video about a superhero who helps clean up the City of Cleveland. As the youth follow in her footsteps, they learn more about being environmentally friendly and how to lead sustainable lifestyles. The Land Protector is in all of us, and the youth made it their duty to provide insight on how to make the city a better place.

February 23, 2016 Cleveland Clinic, PNC Bank offer internship program in honor of Louis Stokes February 23, 2016 By Lydia Coutre View original article on Crain's Cleveland Business The newly established Cleveland Clinic Louis Stokes Internship program will offer opportunities for 100 high school freshmen, the Clinic announced Tuesday, Feb. 23, which would have been the late congressman's birthday. The nine-week, paid internship, co-sponsored by the Clinic and PNC Bank, is an expansion of the Clinic's decade-long summer internship program. The program aims to make students job-ready and to encourage careers in non-clinical areas of health care, such as law, information technology, marketing, human resources and building operations, according to a news release. PNC will fund the program and will provide financial literacy to the students and their families. “I can’t think of a more gratifying way of continuing my husband’s legacy of public service and his longstanding commitment to the youth of Cleveland than the establishment of the Cleveland Clinic Internship in his name,” Stokes’ wife, Jay Stokes, said in a statement. “Lou would enthusiastically support this ambitious job training initiative for our next generation of leaders." Participating students will be residentsContinue Reading
