Welcome, Youth Media Sanctuary!
The Sanctuary for Independent Media introduces Youth Media Sanctuary – a new community media peer-training program in North Central Troy. The program teaches multimedia skills to young people (ages 15-25) in the neighborhood, helping to develop urgently needed independent local voices.
