Connect your neighborhood with a digital makeover

Does your neighborhood need help creating a website, using social media such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, learning how to send text message alerts or any other digital communications?

If so, you might want to take a look at the digital communications workshop Queens University is offering, in partnership with the City of Charlotte.

The workshop is free to attend, thanks to the James L. Knight School of Communication at Queens. Anyone who would like to attend can secure a spot by completing a survey (click here to take the survey) about the workshops by Monday, Sept. 9.

Use the survey to let the Knight School know what skills your neighborhood could benefit from, such as introducing neighborhood resources, sending out alerts of suspicious activity or relaying news about neighborhood events.

The workshop will take place one of three weekends in October or November; the date will be set based on feedback in the survey. It will be at the Knight-Crane Convergence Laboratory on Queens’ campus.
