ORGANIZATION: Action Youth Media

  • 1 person is interested

Action Youth Media (AYM), an after-school arts nonprofit headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, is searching for community members interested in social justice and youth development to serve as board members.

Founded in 2005, AYM promotes media arts to middle and high school students, as a life-enhancing creative activity and a path to rewarding and sustainable careers. In 2023, students learned media arts skills and created short films, podcasts and art in our studio.

AYM is the only nonprofit organization in Montgomery County that offers out-of-school media arts training free of cost to middle school and high school students. Check out some of our students’ projects: https://www.youtube.com/ @filmswithafocus.

About the Action Youth Media Board

Our board is composed of leaders from across Montgomery County and the greater DC region. We see our role as helping to build relationships with, and for, families who need the most support - to improve the quality and depth of our media programs, increase the number of programs, and provide the wraparound support that middle and high school students need to thrive. The AYM Board supports the success of AYM’s Executive Director and staff. Our board members provide valuable perspectives, expertise, and experience to help the organization best welcome and serve youth in under-represented families.

The AYM Board meets the second Tuesday of every other month at 7:00pm. In addition to attending board meetings, each Board member is able to serve on any of our committees and hosts or participates in various organizational events to move our Strategic Plan forward. Professionals with skills in any of the following areas are encouraged to apply:

  • Development/Fundraising
  • Law
  • Marketing/Communications
  • Media Production
  • Partnerships
  • Youth Development/Education

In addition to these areas, we would also like to connect with you if you are a community leader or may be qualified to represent the underserved families and communities in the DC metro region.
