Youth media brings subjects to life

Youth Radio is an organization in Oakland with the deeply held belief that underserved youth have the creativity, skills, and entrepreneurial spirit to become multimedia industry leaders.

They recently started a Brains & Beakers program, where an engineer or scientist brings in a hands-on, minds-on experiment and hangs out to answer questions about it. The young people in Youth Radio then edit and produce the program online.

Here's a link to the media section of our own community's awesome Y-Press. These two organizations are clear evidence that young people are more than ready to take the initiative, sometimes they simply need the tools to do so.
