Coatesville Black Media Renaissance Project

The Youth Voices Project, an initiative of the Coatesville Black Media Renaissance Project, is to have a 6 - 12 week documentary film/news reporting training program for children 13 - 18. Kids that reside in Coatesville and surrounding boroughs or townships, would be trained to produce, film, edit and present news or documentary pieces. The subject would be people/things/updates in Coatesville. The initial phase 1 is to hold a round of interviews with the kids of interest. We will film the interviews either virtually or in person. The kids will be asked to provide their opinion on various social, economic, racial, and health issues. The filmed interviews will be circulated on various social media platforms and used at CBMR events and inform how media messages are uplifted in the community.
