Yvonne Ervin, JJA Vice-President, is organizing a group of mentors  
from the JJA for The Urban Assembly’s School for Music and Art’s 11th  
and 12th graders interested in writing about music.  Although a half  
dozen members did respond that they were interested in becoming  
mentors when we announced the program last month, Yvonne and the staff  
at Urban Assembly have decided to change the parameters so more  
journalists might be able to participate. Contact will be, primarily,  
via email with gatherings of all the mentors and mentees at an  
evening  music event in October, January (around the JJA conference),   
March and June.  The mentees will write reviews with the help of their  
mentors and we’ll have a special section on jazzhouse.org to post  
their work.  An informational meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on  
Thursday, September 17th at a place TBA. Please contact Yvonne if you  
are interested at yervin at urbanassembly.org or 646-278-4383.
