InFocus turns up the volume on empowering youth with The Music Resource Center – Cincinnati staff and a teen member in an interview that will air throughout the month of December.


The Music Resource Center—Cincinnati (MRCC) is a multifaceted teen program that uses recording and performing arts, as well as life skills mentoring to create a sense of empowerment and accomplishment in the urban community.

MRCC teaches adolescents to get along and work together with individuals from diverse backgrounds, to create dynamic products that reflect uniqueness and individuality, to pursue and master new skills, to conduct themselves according to a reasonable code of conduct, and to share their accomplishments in order to enrich the community as a whole.

InFocus host Bill Bell speaks with MRCC Executive Director Karen D’Agostino and Program Director Josh Elstro about the many offerings and the organization’s unique programmatic formula. Dance Instructor Aprina Johnson and long-term teen member Eugene provide testimonials and insight on how MRCC is a real solution and not just another youth program.

Watch InFocus on CitiCable and on City of Cincinnati’s Livestream during the InFocus air schedule:

CHRC’s
Community Outreach Advocates are active in the community & in locked
facilities spreading the message that the violence must stop and are providing
resources for assistance.
Every
week, COA Tony Hill conducts groups at the Hamilton County Youth Detention
Center. Topics encompass decision making, values, friends and not allowing the
past to dictate the future. “Life is and has to be more than surviving (Tony
Hill, 2013).”
On October
9th, Sonja Black, Tony Hill and Ali Rashid Abdullah attended the “Reentry Fair”
at the London Correctional Facility. There were 200 inmates in attendance at
this event where the staff members had the opportunity to disseminate information
about the assistance they provide and engaged the inmates in conversation
regarding the need to stop the violence and make positive life changes. In
addition, they networked with other organizations and programs in attendance
throughout the State.
On October
16th, Aaron Pullins and Steve Sherman gave a presentation at Court
Clinic to 30 attendees.  Topics included
education, empowerment and learning how to resolve conflicts peacefully. They
distributed information regarding the assistance they provide, resources
necessary to make changes in thinking, behavior, and skills required to desist
from violence & continued to spread the message that the violence must
stop.

On October
28th, the Community Outreach Advocates will be attending the “Warren
Correctional Facility Resource Fair.” Like the London Facility the team will
engage with the inmates and distribute information on the assistance they provide,
resources and they will continue to deliver the message that the violence must
stop.

on domestic violence at the Christ Temple Full Gospel Baptist Church in
Evanston. This conference was organized and put on by women from approximately
a dozen churches in the greater Cincinnati area. The conference theme was a
“Season of Healing”. The conference was well attended (approximately 200
attendees from varying socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, religious backgrounds,
etc.). Many survivors of DV gave testimonies concerning the domestic violence
they suffered, shared messages of hope, healing and restoration.
On October

of Ceremony at the Madisonville “Song Fest.” This was a faith base event where
