MyMedia is a project of the MyCom network that trains youth from Greater Cleveland’s middle and high schools to report on health and safety needs from their own neighborhoods. MyMedia promotes more youth perspectives in our area’s public conversation by providing training in journalism, media production, and community engagement. Through MyMedia, youth have the opportunity to share their stories and perspectives on issues that matter to them and their communities. In doing so, they gain valuable skills and experiences that can help them build successful futures. And by elevating the voices of young people, MyMedia is helping to create a more inclusive and representative public conversation in Greater Cleveland.
