New Video Promotes Need for Volunteers


WCPO 9 On Your Side Careers in Media summer interns Robert Covington and Jacob Mantle produced a public service announcement for ProKids, asking the community to step up as volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates. You can see it here.

These CASA Volunteers make a powerful difference for the abused and neglected children they serve, who are often in foster care. In the PSA, Kick Lee talks about his childhood which was spent in the child protection system.

Robert, who is in the School of Creative and Performing Arts class of 2019, and Jacob, who is in the Mariemont High School class of 2019, were mentored this summer by Mona Morrow, WCPO 9 On Your Side community affairs director.
