Girls’ Media is a 10 week program for middle school girls to explore identity, healthy relationships, media representations of gender and race, and more. In response to negative media representations, participants create powerful and positive media, like videos in partnership with CCTV. Our overall goal is to uplift the voices of middle school girls and high school peer leaders by providing space for conversation, creative expression and community building.

Real Talk was piloted in 2015-16 as a five week program for middle and high school boys with a focus on providing a safe space for boys to talk about masculinity and to develop a strong sense of present and future self. Discussion topics included breaking down masculinity, healthy relationships, media messages and future planning. We look forward to expanding the program this year after a solid start.
