Youth Media Project - Mississippi
The Mississippi Youth Media Project, based in Jackson, Mississippi, brings young people, age 14 to 19, together to learn how to report on their community and tell their own stories. Funded in part by the Kellogg Fellows Leadership Alliance, the project's nonprofit fiscal agent, YMP's mission is to teach young people to understand how media is produced, how to produce powerful stories that reach a larger audience, and how to make equity a component in building their community's media narrative.
