Youth Media Project
Re(imagine) Media is a teen-led program centered on media creation and advocacy. We want to empower teens to become a voice for today's youth, so participants in Re(imagine) Media hone their leadership skills as they speak out about issues that are important to them. To view some of their work visit the Re(imagine) Media blog. Each participant contributes ideas for projects and how to do them. Previous projects have included an investigation into teen dating violence and interviews with people at Occupy Pittsburgh. This year our participants are working on a project called Teen Spotlight. They'll interview local teens with unique independent projects--be it a business, newspaper, album, or anything. We want to bring these accomplishments to light and showcase these teens and their awesome work. Another big project for our Re(imaginers) is Re(imagiNATION), a high school band competition. Five bands are chosen as winners to compete live in Schenley Plaza. The winners also receive a personalized press kit (courtesy of Point Park University), mentorship with a local band, as well as chances to perform at the Carnegie Science Center and this December's Holiday Hootenany.

The Re(imaginers) are working hard creating film and audio content. One Re(imaginer) made a public service announcement for homeless youth awareness.
A few other Re(imaginers) interviewed volunteers from the Obama staging area in the South Side and Romney's Greensburg Victory Center. On election day, they conducted exit polls in the South Side. The audio from these interviews were transformed into an election coverage piece.
