Website and one of the videos that I saw caught my ears. If you listen to these children talk they talk about how small they feel and that being small makes them feel like an underdog. Children need to know that there words do matter! And in the video someone say that the youth maybe small but that it is a gift. I love that !
Below is the video that i just talked about
After looking through the Youth Media Project
I found another Website called Youth Speaks. It is a great organization that created poetry slams which they call brave new voices. Their mission statement is
"Youth Speaks creates safe spaces that empower the next generation of leaders, self-defined artists, and visionary activists through written and oral literacies. We challenge youth to find, develop, publicly present, and apply their voices as creators of societal change. Our vision is to shift the perception of youth by combating illiteracy, alienation, and silence, creating a global movement of brave new voices bringing the noise from the margins to the core."
This organization is awesome I like how they give youth a chance to
speak in a different way and I think that they are living up to their mission and making
a difference and giving the youth a voice !
