Featured Project

About Youth Set The Stage

Beginning in 2019, Youth Set The Stage (YSTS) brought together eight local organizations dedicated to amplifying youth voices through media and art. The inaugural YSTS event occurred in June 2019 at the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts, bringing together live music, performance, video, networking and youth voice in a youth-led showcase of those working for social change in our neighborhoods and beyond.

In a series of online and youth-driven programming throughout the 2020-2021 school year, Youth Set The Stage will build a strong network of organizations working in youth media throughout Philadelphia, regularly engage youth media content creators and provide platforms to showcase and present the voices and current perspectives of these Philadelphia youth, creating an audiovisual capsule of our current moment. In the process of year-long cross-collaborations between nine youth media organizations across the city, YSTS will build an accessible toolkit for instructors working with students remotely.
