Founder of Teen Media Project
1995 Global Fellow
Youth in the Teen Media Program (TMP) become creative technology users by participating in media arts and leadership activities. TMP offers a sequenced, multi-year curriculum that uses artistic expression to develop new technology and creative skill. Media Foundations classes introduce youth to the digital arts and media literacy. They hone their creative voice in Video, Photo, Digital Art, Music Production or Dance Studios; and finally, build concrete professional skills in advanced Leadership Groups.
