What does Reel Youth do?
Reel Youth, a not-for profit organization originally based out of Canada, has a media empowerment project supporting youth, adults, and organizations to create and distribute engaging films about the issues they care about.
Reel Youth works with International Schools, NGOs, and Community Groups to:
1. Build capacity in local youth and adults to envision, create, and share their own digital media.
2. Produce and distribute films that give a voice to disadvantaged young people and celebrate the work being done to support them.
3. Deepen schools and youth serving organizations ability to use social media in a meaningful and skilled way.
