Saint Louis Story Stitchers has been selected as an organization for the City of St. Louis’ Youth at Risk Crime Prevention Grant of 2020, Steward Family Foundation, and Missouri Foundation for Health.
This grant will facilitate expanded Studio hours, expanded youth contact hours, expanded youth recruitment, build out of community partnerships, and begin to build an archive of available conversations of and by youth on gun violence and public health topics important to them.
Podcasts, a format popular with youth, will be created by 16 to 24-year old youth in the program to draw in larger numbers of peers. Information on access to social services will be intertwined with arts programming in the podcasts. Monthly podcast episodes of 30 minutes in length will be created and published.
Check out StitchCast Studio, an amazing trip into the world of podcasts for 16-24 year olds living in St. Louis city neighborhoods! Earn while you learn. We all want to hear from you!
