Youth Documentary Academy is looking for students who are interested in using film and storytelling to amplify issues in our community (including but not limited to race, gender, stereotyping, bullying, teen suicide prevention, disability, sexual assault, and LGBT issues among others.)
As the Youth Documentary Academy nears it’s five-year anniversary, they are excited to announce a huge development: YDA will be producing a new public television series featuring the films and voices of YDA students and graduates (past and present.)
Given this news, the summer programming team is developing a special class for the academy this summer. High school students, ages 14 to 18, will learn how to produce, distribute and promote a youth documentary tv series while creating community impact campaigns that engage audiences locally and beyond.
YDA is looking for students who are interested in using film and storytelling to amplify issues in the community (including but not limited to race, gender, stereotyping, bullying, teen suicide prevention, disability, sexual assault, and LGBT issues among others). Previous experience with film and filmmaking is not required.
If you know young people who feel passionately about these (and other social) issues, who demonstrate leadership potential, who are responsible and able to work collaboratively, and who want to be part of a ground breaking new PBS series, please encourage them to apply before April 1!
Free to apply.
