Who's Running This Show?

This program was put on by the Youth Empowerment in Action project out of the Center for Character and Citizenship at the University of Missouri St. Louis with the State of Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. The Youth Empowerment in Action program works with youth to help them get involved in their community and make change happen.

Youth Empowerment in Action has four goals:

  • -Promote healthy environments for positive youth developments
  • -Develop critical thinking and 21st century media production skills
  • -Promote internalization of prosocial, democratic, and health values
  • -Give students opportunities to be positive agents for change in their communities
