Calling all students! Fall is upon us! Why not spend your afternoons learning to become a youth citizen journalist?

MEDIA ARTS Center San Diego, in partnership with the San Diego Public Library, presents Mobile Stories Fall 2011!

SIGN UP by visiting http://www.mobilestories.org! Mobile Stories is a FREE after-school program for students that uses the popularity of  mobile phone technology to connect local youth (ages 9-14 years old) with the extensive resources available at their local library in a format that is both current and easily accessible.
