Youth Breaking Borders

Youth Breaking Borders

Youth Breaking Borders (YBB) is our intensive popular education and leadership program for immigrant and refugee youth.  In YBB, youth produce media that explores critical issues faced by new immigrant youth and their communities; and distribute the pieces, in NYC and nationally, through film screenings, workshops and online delivery platforms to build broad-based support for immigrant youth and intergenerational social change efforts.

Community media in action

Community Media in Action links community social justice issues with youth media makers and community organizers for a compelling collaboration. The program provides trainings and support to NYC based social justice groups; including rapid response media production, live event coverage on social media, developing impactful messaging for campaigns, and public speaking. It is our response to the vital need for both media production and analysis in community organizing efforts. It's our attempt to support youth leadership, arts and media at the forefront of organizing for social change.
