[grid_6]Today’s global economy demands a more educated workforce. Communities are working together to improve 21st century learning and increase high school graduation rates to prepare more students for college and successful careers. Public media stations across the country are at the center of this community-based work providing quality content, forums, and classroom resources to build local capacity for long term success.

About The Digital Media Academy

[/grid_10]

[grid_10]The Digital Media Academy (DMA) is slated to be the most innovative of the programs stemming from the network of Promise Neighborhoods nationwide. Serving 30 youth this summer, the program helps to prepare youth for careers in the 21st century economy through over 130 robust hours of digital media instruction and immersion. Program participants learn to use 21st century tools and technologies to bring their ideas to life and make their voices heard by others in their communities and across the globe.

Youth are charged with producing a PSA campaign as part of their service learning project. This summer, the youth will focus on teen pregnancy prevention. We are interconnecting this program with world class resources from public, private and social partnerships and bringing the most important voice to the table — youth from the community. The DCPNI Youth Portal will feature digital portfolios — youth  works in action.
