Exposing Youth to Reel Life
Our friends at the City Parks Foundation sent over some pictures of a program they held at Hamilton Fish Recreation Center last week. Youth Made Media (YM2) teaches 350 teenagers age 13 to 19 from low-income communities in all five boroughs skills such as video and audio production, media literacy and new media. The students create movies, documentaries and narratives, as well as explore careers and workplaces.
They produce original shows for the Public Access Youth Network and some of the students get to show their work at Tribeca Cinemas at the end of the program. For more info, check out the City Parks Foundation’s website.
