Buy Our Youth Media
Young people are often silenced by their age, but we believe their stories are valuable and need to be heard. Our students write, direct, and star in their own films. We provide them with equipment and guidance, but the final products that you see here are entirely their vision. These films cover a range of topics that are most important to our students.
All of the following films are also available for individual purchase ($15 each), group presentations of 20 or more attendees ($50 each), and facilitated discussions ($250 each). Prices include free shipping and Maryland sales tax. If you are interested in purchasing multiple items, discounts may apply.

Youth producers examine the intellectual and ethical purposes of a school within its surrounding community, and explore methods by which students, teachers, and administrators can most effectively contribute to an ideal learning environment.

There are many preconceived notions about violence in Baltimore City, and only some are accurate. Our youth producers are here – not to tell audiences what is true and what is false – but to convey their perspectives on the diagnosis and treatment of violence in the city.
