Adobe Youth Voices Overview
Show: Adobe Youth Voices
Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) ignites young people’s Creative Confidence – the ability to harness creative skills to solve problems – using advanced digital media tools and tested storytelling techniques. With greater creativity, and a greater belief in their own abilities, young people will be more engaged in their education and better prepared for a fast-changing global economy. AYV is the Adobe Foundation’s global initiative to increase creativity, which we believe is critical to prepare young people to be the problem solvers, critical thinkers, and leaders of tomorrow. Youth develop original media that highlights an issue they care about, identify solutions, and in the process foster critical creative skills and a passion to make a difference. AYV is brought to life through our nonprofit and education partners, educators and employees around the world. Since the program’s launch in 2006, nearly 100,000 youth have created media projects putting to use their newfound creative confidence.
