Adobe Youth Voices App

Full Description: 

Developed for Adobe by EDC, the AYV Story app provides a close-up view of the experiences of the youth media makers and educators who participated in the Adobe Foundation’s Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) initiative. Throughout AYV’s nine-year history,  EDC provided a range of support—including training design, community management, and materials development—to achieve Adobe’s vision to increase creativity in education and equip 13- to 19-year-old youth media makers to create social change through the power of digital storytelling. With EDC's help, AYV reached over 250,000 young artists and 5,000 educators in 60 countries and provided youth with the inspiration, training, and technology to create original, thought-provoking media works on issues they care about, such as issues in their communities, relationships, human rights, and the environment. Through these experiences, participants honed key skills including self-expression, ideation, collaboration, flexibility, and persistence.
