YUNG TV: Hip Fresh & Media-Ready Youth!

Using hands-on video production as its medium, the YUNGTV: Hip Fresh & Media-Ready Youth! Program provides a positive, creative outlet for youth to address the critical issues that affect them or their communities on a daily basis. Through YUNGTV: Hip Fresh & Media-Ready Youth! Program, young people develop and increase critical thinking, decision-making skills, social development, and community awareness. They are also provided with a bridge to higher education, self-advocacy, and employment in the media arts field and the workforce at large - opportunities from which they would otherwise be excluded.

YUNGTV: Hip Fresh & Media-Ready Youth! Program introduces participating young men and women to professional artists/instructors/mentors who guide them through a rich combination of media arts experiences, training on state-of-the-art equipment, roundtable interaction, and collaborative peer critiques. The program participants will attend seminars and exhibits on media literacy and the history of media arts; view and deconstruct existing media content in roundtable discussions; practice elements of design, lighting, audio, and storytelling; master camera and audio equipment, learn to use the most sophisticated non-linear computerized editing systems and participate in the production of the weekly FOX broadcast television series, YUNG TV. In the process, students gain technical and professional proficiency and develop important analytical and decision-making skills.
