Youth Media Project
Youth Media Project's educational work is built upon partnerships, development of project leaders, creation of media literacy and production programs for local to international projects and facilitation of youth productions. We work within 12 distinct educational settings; offering classroom curricula, afterschool programming and summer intensives; trainings for young professionals interested in media and education. We reach, in tandem with teachers and schools, over 800 students, producing 20 youth-generated, original radio broadcasts per year. We currently broadcast on three public radio stations and generate internet distribution through our website, iTunes and Public Radio Exchange. We sponsor listening parties for each new broadcast and encourage the use of student-produced stories for generating dialogue, compassion and activism. So, stay tuned and join us!
