American Graduate Youth Voices Project
Student voices are essential to constructing authentic solutions to the dropout crisis. As part of the WMHT American Graduate Project, WMHT and the Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) at the University at Albany are working collaboratively to draw upon the power of Youth Media.
Students participating in the Liberty Partnerships Program developed media addressing topics identified as critical factors which influence a student’s decision to drop out of school. In 2012, students designed a Youth Summit which was broadcast through a series of interstitials and integrated into the WMHT American Graduate webpage as a source for the greater community.
This grant is funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Watch interstitials of the Liberty Partnership Program-WMHT American Graduate Youth Summit below: Student Clips, Teen Pregnancy and Bullying respectively.
View the Summit and use these questions to hear what your students have to say.
