Building upon NAMAC's history of supporting the work of youth media organizations, in 2013, we launched in partnership with Professor Kathleen Tyner, the latest iteration of our Youth Media National Survey. The Survey was first launched in 2003, and we have surveyed the field several times in the enusing years to gather a body of longitudinal data.
In this blog post, you can access a preliminary overview of the results from this year's survey. Sixty-five (65) youth media organizations responded to these survey questions between April 1 and August 1, 2013. The sample includes standalone youth media organizations and youth media programs embedded within a sponsoring organization.
Professor Tyner will discuss the results of this year's survey in more detail in forthcoming articles for academic and professional audiences.
