PROJECTS: Media bus is a runaway success with students (UK)

Media bus is a runaway success with students

It's called the media bus and it has proved to be a huge success. The bus, which serves high schools in the Wigan area, has a twin function: education by day and entertainment by night. It is used to improve youngsters' reading and writing skills and is transformed in the evenings into a mobile youth centre. Barclays Bank, which supported the project with a £10,000 investment, believe the bus is their best New Futures project of the last 10 years. (Via Wigan News)
