We currently offer workshops specifically for the upper elementary through high school grade levels. Workshop lengths range from 1 hour to 1 day.
Media, Power and You: Empowering Youth Through Smart Media Use
In this introductory workshop, children will learn the basics of media literacy and apply those skills to a specific health topic (i.e. violence, bullying, alcohol, tobacco, vaping, healthy eating, body image, self-esteem, and depression).
Media Power and You in ACTION!: Becoming Positive Message Makers
Young people will delve deeper into a health issue affected by media use. They will learn a variety of advanced media literacy skills and use that knowledge to create an original production such as a Public Service Announcement (PSA). All aspects of pre-production, production and post-production are included, empowering participants to be both critical media consumers and positive message makers.
After School and Community Youth Programs
Multiple 2-Hour Sessions
Community organizations can customize a program to fit their specific needs and time requirements. Introduce the basics of media literacy and then encourage students to apply those skills to a specific health topic (i.e. violence, bullying, alcohol, tobacco, vaping, healthy eating, self-esteem, depression, and body image).
