Fresno City College Ends Free Bus Pass Program For Students

Editor’s Note: Fresno City College recently announced that they will be ending their free bus pass program at the end of the school year as the State Center Community College District decided to no longer fund it, leaving many college students without transportation for the next school year.

We asked the reporters of The kNOw what their thoughts were on the decision and the effect it would have on hundreds of college students who rely on the free bus pass to get to school.

The kNOw Youth Media
The kNOw works to support and equip young people with the journalism and advocacy skills they need to tell their stories and the stories of their communities.

In 2006, over 25 youth began participating in weekly after-school writing workshops where they congregated in the hallway of a two-story building in West Fresno and learned the essentials of creating media and telling their stories. The group evolved over the next five years and is now proudly recognized as The kNOw Youth Media.

Through our program, we create opportunities for our youth participants, who in turn create long-term positive change in their communities. Our approach weaves youth development and youth media innovation to produce our biannual youth publication, multimedia projects, and community forums.

The kNOw began as a project of New America Media, which was the country’s first and largest national collaboration and advocate of 2000 ethnic news organizations. In 2018 The kNOw became a project of Youth Leadership Institute.
