Summer with The Media Awareness Project + Safe Alliance Austin
This summer youth working with Safe Alliance Austin joined with the Media Awareness Project to create a visual reflection representing their views and opinions about the world they live in and how they perceive life and are perceived by others. The time we spent with the kids re-inforced for us the importance of making sure that as a community we are not only exploring the power of youth voice but encouraging it.
If we do not consider the voices and input of children when they are young, when exactly do they learn that their voice is important? That it has the power to change their own life and the lives of others?Nina Medeiros; Executive Director
