Media Power Youth empowers youth to lead healthy, safe lives through smart use of media.Â
Media surrounds us every minute of every day--teaching, entertaining, and connecting us to friends, family, information and new worlds.
When we understand media, how it influences us, and how to produce it in smart safe ways, we are empowered. We are in control.

YouthÂ to lead healthy, safe lives through smart use of media.
ParentsÂ to empower themselves and their children to be smart about media and make healthy, safe choices.
ProfessionalsÂ to bring evidence-based health-focused media education into schools, programs, practices and communities.
