Youth Media

Youth voices are a critical part of our community dialogue.  Our youth media programs help youth to be critical creators and consumers of media.  Through one-day workshops, summer camps, and customized group training, youth gain creative confidence and strengthen their voice.

Here are some of the programs for youth:
