CMAC Youth Voices

CMAC’s Youth Voices program is made possible through a partnership with The California Endowment, Fresno Building Healthy Communities, Youth Leadership Institute, The kNOw Youth Media, Fresno Boys and Men of Color, Fresno Barrios Unidos, and WomXn Empowered.

Our inaugural Youth Voices cohort will be meeting over summer 2019 and will produce several videos that will be screened publicly in the fall. The goal of the program is to increase the health outcomes of youth through video arts. Research shows that sharing stories not only connects people, but is also good for an individual’s mental health.

The cohort will create videos sharing their personal experiences working with Fresno Building Healthy Communities and the challenges and successes they face when trying to improve their communities. The program youth and adult allies will receive extensive training in story development and video production such as media literacy, script writing, camera training, audio, editing and post-production.

The video content the youth create will be shared on CMAC’s local TV channels, online, and at a public event in fall 2019 – giving greater impact to youth voices, while changing the narrative of how young people can have a positive impact on their communities.
