Youth Voices (KCET)

Youth Voices is an online multimedia curriculum that supports and encourages youth to be actively engaged citizens willing and able to engage in various aspects of their community and initiate local action campaigns utilizing multimedia tools. Youth Voices has three stages: Students have an opportunity to explore their community -- the people, stories, businesses, landscape -- and become actively engaged in the improvement of their neighborhood. Media will be used throughout the project to investigate, document and share information to a wider audience in an effort to create an open dialogue between the students and community members. Students will become advocates for their cause presenting their findings to the community (neighborhood board, city council, school board, chamber of commerce, non-profit, etc.) with the goal of implementing the improvement they identified through the process.
