News from the Youth Department

Hello Molly!

by Molly Budke, SPNN Youth Visibility Coordinator I’m Molly and I’m so excited to be joining the SPNN Youth Department as the new Visibility Coordinator. My background is in live performance work (I recently tried stand-up comedy for the first time!), and in May I completed a master’s degree in Theatre Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am not new to the area though – I graduated from Augsburg College in 2010 and in my years at the school I fell in love with the Twin Cities – I’m so glad to be back in Minnesota, though I’ll always root for my Wisconsin football teams.

Meet Ginny Lee

This fall, we have a new staff member here at SPNN Youth. Ginny Lee, a sophomore at Macalester College, will work with Set It Up as an assistant. She is working here through the Off-Campus Student Employment (OCSE) program at Macalester. OCSE provides students an opportunity to work off-campus and experience local community organizations while earning their financial aid awards. The program spartnerships between Macalester and the Twin Cities community. This is Ginny’s first year as an OCSE student, and she is very excited to be involved.


Afterschool Media-Making Fun

In the Fall of 2014, SPNN will start the SPNN Open Labs (SOL) and Createch. We welcome all youths located in St. Paul to attend SOL every Monday, during the school year from 3-6PM (excluding holidays) at SPNN in St. Paul. We will also be at Arlington Hills Community Center in the Createch Studio on Tuesdays from 4-6PM. Feel free to drop in anytime during SOL or at the Createch Studio.
