Street-Level Youth Media's Digital Fusion program provides opportunities in audio/music production, video production and graphic design for high school aged youth in Chicago's underserved communities.
15 youth are selected each semester to participate in a paid internship program that creates a multimedia piece aimed at bringing positive social change to their communities. Through after school training opportunities for underserved youth, participants gain important critical and artistic thinking skills, while making a positive impact in their community.
Final projects, which this semester include original hip-hop songs promoting positive images of success, accompanied by album artwork and a music video, are exhibited at a culminating event open to the public.
Street-Level empowers youth to bring positive change to their community, while providing them with valuable 21st century learning skills that put them on track for success in college and beyond.
This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
