Newburgh Futures is a project that uses the power of story to build community and imagine futures. The podcast is a project of the Collaborative for Equity in Literacy Learning at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, New York. Our mission is to support youth in learning about and preparing for their futures. We do this through the creation and distribution of podcasts that highlight career exploration and issues that are important to the lives of youth. Our podcasts seek to highlight different careers and provide real world insight helpful for imagining their futures, while also empowering youth to become involved in positive social change.
