Hands-on media literacy training program targeting youth & young adults
Providing an intensive introduction to media literacy and video production skill building
As a final project, participants create original music videos or public service announcements (PSAs) which address high-impact social issues and promote positive messages to a wider audience of their peers through YouTube, social media, and local movie theaters.
This program can be adjusted and offered to a wide variety of youth. We have great success in engaging “hard to reach,” populations and getting Delaware youth excited about being a media creator and public influencer.
