Media Mentors – FSM, ARK, & GCYC

Youth-Led Storytelling & Skill-Building

Media Mentors is a joint project, led by Free Spirit Media with partners Gary Comer Youth Center and ARK of St. Sabina.

The goal of Media Mentors is for youth to engage in project-based, hands-on curriculum, utilizing a variety of different technology and equipment. Youth will become student reporters, creating media on topics important to them. They will work with equipment like iPod touches and DSLR cameras to create photography, and audio/video projects.

Free Spirit Media advanced student reporters will be the co-instructors with FSM staff; mentoring GCYC and ARK youth on topics like: media literacy, narration, b-roll, story creation, interviewing, and more!
