Program Description
Media Power Youth (MPY) is a nonprofit organization that empowers youth to use media in creative and responsible ways that support well-being. We recognize that media and technology have the power to enrich our lives by connecting us to new people and ideas and yet at the same time, these communication tools can create anxiety and conflict. We are seeking talented youth leaders to help us build a new educational program on navigating social media in healthy ways. Together with the STEM Discovery Lab at UNH Manchester, we’ll explore how our technology habits can affect mental health and relationships and design educational experiences to prepare young people for the challenges they will likely encounter in digital spaces.

High school students in grades 9 to 12 are invited to apply. The application can be completed online at mediapoweryouth.org/youth-design-team. The application deadline is October 12th. Selected students will meet via Zoom on Thursday afternoons from 3:30pm to 5:30pm from October 22nd to December 17th. Students must have reliable internet access to participate and consent to provide feedback on their experience through a focus group and/or survey questionnaire at the end of the program. Participants will create a project-based learning module for middle school students driven by the underlying questions: What do teens need to do and know in order to build a strong, safe, and supportive online network? Students will have the option of staying involved with Media Power Youth (if they choose) to help implement their ideas with middle school students in the Spring of 2021.

This opportunity meets a variety of ISTE and health educational standards and students may be able to earn extended learning opportunity (ELO) credits for their participation. Students seeking ELO credits should note this on their application so that we can coordinate as needed with their local school district. Decisions on whether or not to grant ELO credits are made locally by school administrators.
