THE YR MEDIA MOVEMENT
YR Media is a leading arts and media incubator and platform for young content creators, who are using their voices to change the world.
Who We Are
We produce and amplify media, music and artistic content with audiences in the millions through our platforms and our legacy partners. As both media and music educators on a local level and content producers on a national level, we focus on bringing forth underrepresented youth perspectives. Our national network includes over 150 correspondents between the ages of 18 and 30, and we are growing every year.
What We Do
We help youth build their career readiness skills through intensive, experiential media arts education, employment programs and holistic, wraparound services that position them to pursue careers in media, tech and creative industries and become thoughtful, civically engaged citizens.
Who We Serve
Young, majority BIPOC creatives, journalists, and entrepreneurs who are leading conversations, creating change in their communities, and passionate about making a brighter future for their generation and those to come.
Each year YR Media engages over 2,500 students – 78% are BIPOC. Through our platforms, we provide 300 jobs for young people annually. Our youth-led content and national network of contributors reach an audience of millions.
