YouthAir awarded Grant from City of Seattle


Dr. James Gore, host of New Urban Unlimited, has some wonderful news pertaining to one of his program’s segments.

YouthAir, featured on New Urban Unlimited once a month and which was co-developed by the show’s hosts Nia and Cypress, was recently awarded a City of Seattle Youth Art Grant for 2016 – 2017. YouthAir is a storytelling feature that Dr. Gore says is about youth in the community and has engaged and inspired so many local youth.

“These wonderful young ladies have really made a difference in the community,” said Dr. Gore

Nia and Cypress are the daughters of Dr. Lisa Price, who is also a New Urban Unlimited contributor. Dr. Price focuses on quality health issues during her segment. As an educator, Dr. Gore founded the Jackson Street Music Program, an experiential learning program which exposes urban youth to the arts and higher education.
