The EmpowerED Youth Digital Media Job-Readiness Training Program Using AI

In our community, economically disadvantaged youth face daunting challenges, from limited opportunities to a lack of resources. These barriers hinder their access to comprehensive filmmaking skills and understanding of artificial intelligence’s integration in the industry. Recognizing this pressing need, our organization embarked on a mission to empower our youth to overcome these hurdles.

The EmpowerED Youth Digital Media Job-Readiness Training Program using AI, emerged as a direct response to this urgent need. Grounded in our commitment to social justice and equity, this transformative initiative aims to provide a structured pathway for young individuals to develop essential skills, explore their creativity, and enhance their job readiness within the realm of digital media content.

The program spans 43 weeks and targets economically disadvantaged youth, particularly those in grades 9th-12th, within the Michigan area. It goes beyond conventional education by integrating internship opportunities with local businesses. Collaborating with companies in the region, our organization aims to provide valuable hands-on experience for program graduates.

Participants engage in a comprehensive curriculum covering various aspects of filmmaking, including scriptwriting, content creation, acting, and the integration of artificial intelligence. However, the program isn’t solely about technical proficiency; it adopts a holistic approach to personal development and job readiness. Participants also cultivate essential life skills like teamwork, communication, and problem-solving.
