Digital Media Creates Youth Voices Heard

Jeff Sallee, Corbin Dewitt

Abstract


Oklahoma 4-H clubs and military service centers partnered with the Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) program to give youth opportunities to raise their voices through digital media. This program reached out to underrepresented youth and gave them the tools and technology to effectively express themselves. The intent of this project was for 4-H members to create videos to educate, help and raise awareness in their communities of topics that were important to the youth. These experiences help youth gain knowledge towards helping others solve farm, home, and community problems. Participating youth selected issues that were important to them and created a short video, educating others and sharing their convictions on the topics of horse therapy, citizenship, bullying, and distracted driving.
