Digital media skills development
The vision of Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) was to empower young people to harness creativity and digital skills to create change in their lives and their communities.
Through a network of dedicated educators, Adobe has inspired young people to be intentional and impactful in their media making, to create with purpose. As Arviat’s site coordinator I mentored Inuit youth in digital skills development and media production.
“The high school lab has great equipment and a lot of really advanced technology, but we’ve always struggled with having access to software, so this donation, along with the entire AYV program, will help our youth build the foundation needed to establish a sustainable, multi-year, youth-driven media program for the community.”-Jamie Bell, Kivalliq News, October 30, 2013
