Forever Young Zones
Hospital Forever Young Zones are recreational therapy rooms created to provide engaging tools for exercising the imagination of seriously ill children who face emotional and physical challenges. These Zones provide treatment free spaces where staff can build supportive relationships with children and teens to help them in their recovery process. They provide a sanctuary where children working through serious illness and rigorous treatments can relax, play, and just be a child.
Forever Young Media Zones provide a state-of-the-art radio, TV, film and design studio, as well as a professional-quality recording studio with an isolated vocal booth and digital audio mixing. This multimedia equipment and programming will enable youth to develop diverse, high-level communication skills while training on professional equipment. The goal of these zones is to put technological tools into the hands of creative young people, allowing them to explore and prepare for careers in media and design while developing practical production and copy through their own artistic expression.
8 TO 80 ZONES
The 8 to 80 Zones are a collaboration between Steve Young (#8) and Jerry Rice (#80), which provide youth living in underserved communities the skills to pursue careers in technology, esports, gaming, and media. 8 to 80 Zones not only allow for artistic expression but also afford students the opportunity to gain training on industry-standard equipment and software in the areas of television, radio, voice recording, graphic design, and game development.
