The objectives of Coastal Youth Media Project are to:
Use media as a tool to prepare young people for success in school, work, and life.
Empower participants to become engaged citizens and to recognize the interconnections between coastal communities and the rest of the world.
Build upon the rich history of coastal culture to empower our youth to develop their voices and creative abilities.
Amplify the voices of youth on the North Carolina coast so they can reach local communities and the decision-makers who affect their lives.
The Coastal Youth Media Project was founded by Working Narratives staff, who come from the fields of journalism, art, and organizing. We are inspired by the example of such organizations as Global Action Project (New York); Wide Angle Lens (Maryland); Youth Radio (California); and Appalachian Media Institute (Kentucky).
