Youth In Action
This series shows the youth that at any age, they have the power to make a direct difference in their own lives. Like the series you screened last year, the continuation follows young people across the U.S. who have witnessed injustice and have chosen to take action. Mississippi youth noticed inaccuracies in voter rolls and decided to form Mississippi Votes, while in Massachusetts, Sophrosyne Mental Health was founded by a student who recognized the need for mental health education. All young people have the same capacity to be leaders, the younger they learn this the better. The completed series includes fourteen episodes with a total runtime of 1 hour, 11 seconds. This format allows for educators to show the series either in part or as a whole.
