MW logoWe offer workshops in media literacy, basic camera and editing to create collaborative video projects; our curricula can be tailored to you or your teens' projects and learning needs. We teach them how to use our professional-grade equipment, run them through the production process, and facilitate a finished production. Students in small groups can create documentaries, public service announcements, personal narratives or other content. And to top it off, they get to air their content online and throughout the 9-city area.

We want to help your teens to learn new skills and have fun! Whether that means partnering with an existing after school class or creating a new one, we love to facilitate an empowering process where teens make media about the topics that matter to them. We tailor our curriculum to your youth, working toward critical literacy so that students can understand how to read between the lines in a media-saturated world, and how to create quality media.

 

YL logoThe Young Lenses programs offer an inspirational experience where students ages 11-14 learn media literacy through deconstruction of mainstream media and creation of their own PSAs. Girls In Focus and Boys In Focus encourage young people to examine the representations of gender in mainstream media, to connect with other youth, and to explore storytelling through video production. Girls In Focus accepts female-identified and genderqueer youth and begins with a critical discussion of the film Miss Representation. Boys In Focus accepts male-identified and genderqueer youth and begins with a critical discussion of the film The Mask You Live In. Learn more about the Young Lenses programs here. 

Best of all, we do all of this for free! Afterward, students are certified on our equipment and can come to CTV and create their own programming.


We're always open to new partnerships, whether in this school year or further in the future. We have the capacity to host these programs in a variety of formats and the flexibility to work within your youth organization’s current programming schedule.
