The Bay Area Youth Media Network is a consortium of nonprofit organizationsthat believe in the power of media (film, music, radio, photography, web and technology) as a means to engage youth voice, self-expression and empowerment and to inspire social change. As like-minded organizations in the youth media field, we are able to tap into the rich potential of our collective resources and our expertise as educators working to define an alternative, media-based education for youth.
