ONE SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN AT A TIME
Yes, we understand that a social media program is not your typical youth development program. Many skeptics of the program have asked, how a social media training program will actually help disadvantage youth be successful or just how viable a career in social media is anyway. Our answer is that this program is much bigger than the training or the internship that they receive during the program. Social media is quickly becoming the most impactful tool that the world has ever seen and its significance continues to grow everyday. This program was built to help youth that have historically had no voice understand the impact they could have if they decided to wield social media as there weapon of choice. Built on providing young voices a safe place to express themselves, a forum to be listened and build confidence and understanding the significance of what the potential of social media is.
