We are all over the Internet so that we can share youth projects and goings-on in the YOUmedia universe. Follow us!
YOUmedia Hartford is a space where teens explore, express and create using digital media. YOUmedia’s core philosophy is that youth are best engaged when they’re following their passions, collaborating with others and being makers and doers. As such, YOUmedia is dedicated to helping teens discover and explore their passions in a resource rich space. High school students can access laptops, mobile devices, game systems, image and video editing software, maker tools, a sound booth and respectful and tech-savvy mentors dedicated to supporting their growth as digital creators. Additionally, students may request resources, form their own project groups or connect with other library departments to further personalize their learning experience. Students from 13-19 are welcome and YOUmedia Hartford is free with a valid Hartford Public Library card.
