Adobe Youth Voices works to engage and inspire youth, aged 13-19, to get involved in their communities and build creative confidence, a skill much needed for the 21st century. The organization partners with community and youth development organizations in over 60 countries and provides professional development to educators to support student’s development of digital media projects. Youth choose a topic that matters to them and their community, from health care to the environment. They are then given the tools and training to create a project to express their viewpoint using digital media such as video, animation, drawings, spoken word, or another artistic medium.
Students projects on dozens of topics are available in the media gallery on their website. Educators can also join a free network of educators working on media projects with youth to access free curriculum and video tutorials.
