Building Youth Media Capacity



TakingITGlobal is delivering innovative programming for youth to engage in hands on media production and share their perspectives on the social issues that affect them.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The digital revolution has created spaces for young people to spread their messages on a global scale. Through TakingITGlobal's youth media programs, youth are better equipped to claim the power to create and distribute their ideas

How will this project solve this problem?

By creating spaces for youth to think critically and engage in meaningful media-making, offering professional development opportunities to youth and educators through training, capacity-building, and exposure to 21st century tools, and ensuring that the work produced by youth artists is given international visibility and showcased.

Potential Long Term Impact

Youth will be empowered to express themselves using a media making strategy that is designed to engage youth in social change dialogue.
