Youth Rights Media is an outstanding example of effective work to improve communities. They engage teens and young adults to identify injustice and produce media (documentaries, music, etc.) to publicize issues/needs. The young people learn new tools and skills -- both in media production and in community organizing -- in the process of solving community problems.
