The Representation Project is inspired by young people every day. Whether you’re organizing against sexist dress codes, creating boundary-pushing art, deconstructing masculinity or speaking out against stereotypes – you’re part of changing the culture for the better!
Our dynamic youth programs are training the next generation of media creators working to create a more gender-equitable world!
Our Youth Media Academy (YMA) trains the next generation of social justice filmmakers to effectively use storytelling to change the world. Inspired by the trailblazing work of our founder Jennifer Siebel Newsom and led by professional filmmakers, students in the YMA learn technical aspects of filmmaking – from concept to storyboarding, filming, editing, and other aspects of production. Students also learn about social justice issues, community engagement, political activism, and social-emotional learning.
