When reading Goodman’s Teaching Youth Media, i began thinking about Black Journal, but then researched to find other organizations that teach different forms of media to the youth. I came across this group called “Street-Level Youth Media.” This is their mission statement:
Street-Level Youth Media educates Chicago’s urban youth in media arts and emerging technologies for use in self-expression, communication, and social change.
Street-Level’s programs build critical thinking skills in youth who have been historically neglected by policy-makers and mass media. Using video and audio production, digital arts, and the internet, Street-Level’s young people address community issues, access advanced communication technology, and gain inclusion in our information-based society.
