CCE Awarded $2,000 Serve 2.0 Grant

imagesIn March 2009, the Center for Community Engagement was awarded a $2,000 Serve 2.0 grant from the Bonner Foundation to help a local organization become engaged with their community on the web. With the use of social media applications, such as Facebook and YouTube, the grant will support the newly-formed Main Street Arts Co-Op located in downtown Buckhannon, WV. Students will gather video and stories from local artists in Upshur County and post these to various social media outlets to promote the Arts Co-Op. Since the organization is new, the grant will support the initial marketing and public relation needs, and will engage Wesleyan students with the local community. The launching of this social media campaign will begin in May/June 2009. For more information about the Serve 2.0 initiative, go to http://serve.pbwiki.com/.
