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 amplify youth-focused and led media, music and artistic content. As both a media and music educator on a local level and an editorial connector on a national level – with a 141-member freelance network of correspondents under 30 – we focus on bringing forth underrepresented youth perspectives in both urban and rural areas.
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
14- to 24-year-old youth locally and nationally, with a focus on uplifting young BIPOC.
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.
