Street-Level Youth Media educates Chicago’s urban youth in media arts and emerging technologies for use in self-expression, communication, and social change. Street-Level’s programs build critical thinking skills for young people who have been historically neglected by public policy makers and mass media. Using video and audio production, computer art and the Internet, Street-Level’s youth address community issues, access advanced communication technology and gain inclusion in our information-based society.

Street-Level’s media arts training programs are free and open to youth ages 8 to 22. Each year, we reach 1,000 youth across Chicago through on-sitein-school, and community-basedworkshops in video production, audio and music production, graphic design, and digital photography.

Our programs promote media and news literacy, and empower youth to be agents of social change in their community.

All workshops are free, but space is limited to 15 youth per class. Pre-registration is encouraged. To register, please complete and return this (PDF)on-line membership form.
