"Many of the kids I am working with have never used a computer before and never taken a picture before. This has become an amazing opportunity for them. A few of the kids have told me that the Adobe Youth Voices program has given them hope and a belief that they can make a difference in the world."— Jamie Aquino, Educator, Haiti
Adobe Youth Voices at TakingITGlobal
Through Adobe Youth Voices, TakingITGlobal works in partnership with NGOs, educational institutions and youth organizations in an effort to engage youth aged 13-18.
TakingITGlobal carefully selects partner organizations from its vast network and provides them with the tools and training required to implement local youth media-making programs. Our partner organizations deliver exciting programming for the youth in their communities with the goal of preparing them to create media artwork that lead them to become the problem solvers, critical thinkers, and leaders of tomorrow.
We are committed to ensuring that the work of our participants is given global visibility. We work with our partners to provide a range of platforms for youth media projects to be exhibited and youth voices to be heard by international audiences.
TakingITGlobal and Adobe Youth Voices have been working together since 2010 to provide opportunities and tools for youth to use their voices and express themselves. Currently we are working with 73 diverse organizations all over the world.
