What is YCC?
Youth Correspondents Corps (YCC), a component of YUMEI, is our institution to train 9th-12th Grade Metro Grand Rapids Area High Schools Students for careers in radio broadcasting, television broadcasting, video production, movie/theatre production, internet content production or publishing.
This training will empower our students to produce TruthSeeking and TruthSaying media, prepare them for On-Air media producer roles with the upcoming URBRadio online broadcast platform and prepare them for collegiate heritage reinforcement, excellence immersion and academic reinforcement via preparation for attending one of America’s legendary HBCU Diaspora (America’s 100+ Historically Black College/University institutions founded in 1837 to train the public servants, professionals and faith leaders that would be required for Africentric progress following the Emancipation of Slavery in 1862).
