Fellows will come together in a supported, sustained, and facilitated setting intended to engage them as experts from the field, to promote collaborative learning, and to inspire emerging leadership.

The Youth Media Learning Network (YMLN) is a pilot initiative intended to promote professional development and capacity building for the youth media field on a national scale. The central goals of YMLN are to: strengthen youth media teaching and learning practices; extend the reach of best practices from youth media work; foster communities of reflection for youth media educators; and support the development of sustainable peer learning networks across local regions.
As a pilot initiative, YMLN is a joint project of the Educational Video Center (EVC) and the Education Development Center (EDC), with support from the Open Society Institute and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
