This book examines how youth media pedagogy can facilitate young people’s understanding of the social, historical and political contexts that shape their lives. It also explores how the practice of youth media facilitates the production of knowledge and culture by subjects who are misrepresented and under-represented in mainstream media. In Part One, I theorize Global Action Project’s youth media practice, based on my personal experiences as co-founder and executive director of this organization. I use the conceptual frameworks of critical literacy, citizens media and cultural production to argue that youth media has the potential to foster young people’s sense of agency and power to affect positive social change in their communities. In Part Two, I test my arguments by engaging youth participants in memory workshops. The memory workshop, a participatory research methodology, allows us to understand the impact that youth media has had on youth, from their own perspectives.
