In the Fall of 2012, the Media Awareness Project brought #YouthPoweredMedia to Mendez Middle School in Dove Springs. The ’44, as the kids call it, is definitely an area where some families are affected by the digital divide, lacking access to technology and technology education.  Administrators at both the school and district level continue to support both students and families by making an intense commitment to bringing  innovative after-school programming to the campus and we’re pretty excited that they are investing in a Media Awareness program for the kids.
