Via Coral Gables Community Foundation
To recruit, train and empower seniors as citizen journalists, bridge the "Gray Divide" and create a model that can be used elsewhere
In partnership with the University of Miami School of Communication, the community foundation will help create, launch and maintain a digital news site for seniors, Gables HomesPage. University students will pair with seniors to train them to report, write and blog. Also, an independent board will ensure operational independence and journalistic standards. The project will empower seniors as journalists and engage them in civic affairs.
