Throughout the year, Wide Angle Youth Media partners with community groups, schools, agencies, and other non-profits to teach young people how to use media to educate their community, advocate for their concerns, and increase their impact.
Baltimore Electric Vehicle Initiative
Wide Angle Youth Media is excited to be partnering with the Baltimore Electric Vehicle Initiative (BEVI), a public-private partnership advancing the use of zero-emission vehicles in the mid-Atlantic region, and Green Street Academy, a new middle-high school with an emphasis on preparing students for jobs in green industries. Learn more about this project on our blog.
Past Special Projects include:
Carrera West Media Club – A weekly media club in partnership with the Baltimore City Health Department, in which high school students explore various media and art techniques, creating a personal or group project in under 2 hours.
Experience Corps Video Oral Histories – Elementary-school students are trained in interview technique, and record the memories of the civil rights era told by older adults. This is a partnership with Experience Corps.
