National Youth Media Summit Official Report-Out

2:30 pm, Wed (Aug 26)
Join youth media educators and stakeholders as they participate in an official “Report Out” of the National Youth Media Summit. The Summit was a two and a half day convening in Lake Forest, IL from August 5-7, 2009 attended by a 12 person steering committee and 30 stakeholders in the field (including academics, practitioners, youth producers/young professionals and funders) diverse in geographical location, ethnicity, and approach to youth media.
At the Summit, the participants will build strategies necessary to sustain the youth media field in six issue areas. These issue areas will be released publicly in Fall 2009 as “The State of the Field” white paper. As an attendee at this report-out, you will receive a copy of this document and be asked to contribute/sign off on a collective plan of action (an Investment Prospectus of the Youth Media Field, which will also release in Fall 2009).
