Youth Media Project
Youth Media Project teaches the craft of digital storytelling and the art of listening for a socially responsible world--fostering creative expression through literacy, production, leadership training, civic engagement and community partnerships.
Since January 2004, YMP has developed over 30 on-going educational collaborations; 7 seasons of radio broadcasts and over 50 unique programs.
Each program employs inquiry-based learning, application of academic content, a foundation in media literacy, development of communication skills, hands-on media production, and the creation of media stories about critical social issues. Last year, we served over 700 students, educators and families across New Mexico.
Launched in 2009, YMP's Project Leadership Program trains the next generation of media educators. Through an internship to mentorship to fellowship model, emerging professionals apply YMP's curriculum to meet the demand for our programming in a variety of educational settings.
