BPS Youth Voices Program is part of a signature global philanthropy program designed to provide youth in underserved communities with the critical skills they need to become active and engaged members of their communities and the world at large. This initiative ignites young people’s Creative Confidence—the ability to harness creative skills to solve problems—thereby empowering them to find their voice and make it heard. At the heart of the BPS Youth Voices Project is an educational methodology that provides youth with the inspiration, training, and technology to create original, thought-provoking media works on relationships, human rights, the environment, and other topics. Through these experiences, participants hone skills of self-expression, ideation, collaboration, flexibility, and persistence— the skills we regard as central to Creative Confidence. The program comes to life as young people identify an issue they care about, and express a point of view on that issue by creating original media content – from videos to essays, animation to music. BPS Youth Voices team will share thought provoking visuals and film student projects along with our teaching learning experiences. In addition, we will also share exemplars from our Computer Science Learning modules developed in collaboration with student leaders, lead educators and community organizations
