Campus Compact and WVU Journalism students are teaming up to power the "Learn Not to Burn" Campaign.

Campus Compact's West Virginia West Virginia Affiliate has given a group of students a $5,000 grant.

The journalism students are using the money to rebuild the "Learn Not Burn" program that was previously run by the Sunnyside Up group.

"What we do with our grant is we get requests directly from communities, things they would like to work with students and faculty on. We find out what faculty are interested in and what courses they do. And then we make connection between the two," said Franchesca Nestor, of Campus Compact.

"Learn Not to Burn" was established by the Sunnyside Up Campus Neighborhood Revitalization Corporation to teach students not to set intentional fires.
