Power Interns Ask, "How Do Media Influence Youth?"
The UCCP prepares and support youth to become confident, effective leaders. They collaborate with organizations to create cultures that value and integrate the contributions of youth, thereby building stronger communities.
On Wednesday, March 17, we welcome 10 "Power Interns" from Philadelphia high schools for a tour of the Media Education Lab. We will discuss the influence of media and technology on youth. We introduce them to the "Media Literacy Remote Control" and describe our work at Powerful Voices for Kids. Then, we explore two media literacy interventions: Admongo and My Pop Studio.
We'll have time to talk about students interests in the topic of media influence on children and youth.
