The messages today’s youth encounter across media have enormous influence. Video games show them how to act. Commercials tell them what to eat. Characters in their favorite shows become role models.
In a world where media is a constant, we empower youth to make healthy choices about their behavior while teaching them to create a positive digital footprint.
Media Power Youth provides young people, parents, educators, and communities with curricula, training and workshops to build media literacy knowledge and critical-thinking skills to navigate our media-rich world. We empower youth to reap the benefits of media while recognizing the influence it can have on specific behaviors that set a course for their entire lives, including violence, bullying, substance misuse, and nutrition.
