Swept Away Media is a 13 year old youth media program that offers opportunities for students interested in the media fields. Students act as backpack journalists who write, edit, and produce their own video segments. This year's initiative is to share the production with students all over the work to see their likes dislikes and favorites. Book reviews, video game reviews, live show reviews, movie reviews and interviews will make up the bulk of the Swept Away Media platform. If you are interested in the above please send us an email. In Fall 2016 we will be having a series of workshops to train interested students. If you have skills and can work with little direction you would be able to work on this project during the summer 2016.
