About

Illinois Youth Media is the umbrella name for youth media projects generated and supported by Illinois Public Media at the University of Illinois in Urbana, Illinois.

This website is both an interactive space for Illinois Public Media’s on-going youth media projects as well as home to the research and raw interviews, transcripts, documents, photos, press coverage, blog postings and user comments of past youth media project participants and their produced television, radio and Internet programs. The site also features impact videos for each project when available.

The Get Resources section features lesson plans created by teachers using youth media generated TV, radio and Internet programs as well as media in general to engage students in classroom learning.

The Youth Media Projects Around the World section attempts to link youth media practitioners worldwide to local, regional, national and international youth media projects. If you would like your project listed, please email kranich@illinois.edu.

Donating financially is one way you can keep this program running!
