We are proud to present the McKeesport Media Oasis.

Throughout the spring and summer of 2018, professionals in the field of journalism spent time with the young people of the YouthCAST program in McKeesport, to help them tell journalistic stories with their own words and images.

A dozen middle school and high school students interviewed members of the community, wrote stories from their own lives, used DSLR cameras to make photographs and flexed their creativity.

This project received grant funding from the Pittsburgh Foundation and Point Park University’s Department of Community Engagement and Center for Inclusive Excellence.

We hope you enjoy this fresh look at McKeesport.
