How does the program work?
TakingITGlobal carefully selects partner organizations from its vast network and provides them with the tools and training required to integrate youth media making into existing youth-focused programs and initiatives. We look for partners that have the passion and capacity to integrate Adobe Youth Voices into their existing programming in a way that is meaningful and sustainable.
Two individuals from each selected partner site are assigned to lead the program. These two individuals are trained to be Adobe Voices educators. Educators can be teachers, youth workers, media experts, or simply people who are passionate about innovation, community development, and youth engagement.
TakingITGlobal provides educators with 8 weeks of training. The training is an e-course that runs asynchronously and provides educators with tools and resources to run the program locally. Educators are expected to facilitate youth’s critical exploration of key issues with the use of digital tools.
Once educators are equipped to deliver the program, they go on to integrate media programming into their work. Educators facilitate a process that allows young people to create multimedia projects that deliver their ideas and messages to the world.
