Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) Training Program

What is Adobe Youth Voices?

Adobe Youth Voices (AYV), the Adobe Foundation’s global signature philanthropy program, empowers youth from underserved communities to use technology to explore and express their perspectives on issues impacting them and their communities. Through Adobe Youth Voices, youth ages 13 to 18 create compelling videos, animations, photo essays, presentations, music, and other pieces that contribute the essential perspectives of youth to critical topics and inspire new solutions to long-standing problems. It’s all about “creating with purpose” and also about building valuable skills that open doors to future success.
