We ask kids to speak up to build a more equitable world. Kids need outlets to speak up and be heard, and they need safe places to practice using digital tools. Our culture often devalues the voices of youth, especially BIPOC youth. As a result, we work with students not to teach them creativity, but to amplify the creativity that is already within them. We do this by teaching digital media skills, coaching students on script writing, and finding outlets for kids to be louder. Scroll down to learn more.
