The Youth Media Institute empowers young people in west Seattle by offering media training with a strong social justice orientation. Our main program is the summer Youth Out Loud, where high school students learn Media Literacy, Video Production and Still Photography.
Working with skilled and dedicated Teaching Artists, our youth participants produce video and photo stories that express their point of view about the community they live in. These student pieces are exhibited in a community screening at the end of summer.
Check out the video on this page that features our students talking about the program and the work they have done!
