Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The HUSH and Carnation audio podcast teams and the Shush webisode team will each produce one episode that will be aired on Voices in the Valley before being uploaded onto the podcast directories and our YouTube channel and becoming a part of the StoryArk Network. We also will expand awareness such that our audience grows by 25%. We will use weekly assessments that include both students and mentors and participant surveys at the end to determine if student engagement increased, team working skills have been enhanced and artistic endeavors have been enriched. We will assess the quality of our episodes and the success in reaching an expanded audience by examining the analytics of our podcast host, website, digital flyers and social media.
