Overview

Youth Rights Media (YRM) is a New Haven, CT-based nonprofit dedicated to empowering youth to know, protect and advance their rights. 

YRM builds youth power and leadership by teaching media production and community engagement skills, equipping young people with tools and strategies for affecting change within themselves and their communities.

YRM believes that all youth, regardless of where they live, their racial background or their socioeconomic status have leadership potential. YRM runs programs to help encourage the evolution of a society that respects and values the potential of all youth and creates spaces for them to contribute to the decisions that most affect them; a future where young people are treated as citizens, whose voices and stories are not just heard but become catalysts for change; a future where all youth have access to media education and possess the skills and knowledge necessary to think critically about the media; and a future where youth are not abused by the media but instead use media to promote social justice.

When families, schools and communities take the view that children and youth are valued and respected assets to society, they necessarily support environments that nurture youth development. Children raised to embrace positive social values, to seek self-understanding, and to value their self-worth grow to become community-minded young adults with a sense of belonging and a belief in their resiliency.
