Project YBEAM Is Looking for You!Written by Lou Diliberto
KAHULUI, HI, August 02 -- Akakūʻs Project YBEAM (Youth Broadband Education &Awareness Mentoring) is now accepting applications for participation in its new youth broadband program. Project YBEAM is a program aimed at educating the youth and young adults of Maui County in broadband technology through the use of video production, web streaming, online courses, and civic engagement. It is open to anyone ages 10-24, who is willing to committ to the Project YBEAM class schedule, which has been designed as an after-school program. Access to the newest media technologies involves participants shooting, editing and uploading remote video correspondence all from the iPod Touch. The video news segments produced will be featured on Akakūʻs new video website, MauiTube, which also fuels the curriculum of Project YBEAM with online tutorials, classes and lectures. The hope is to encourage participants to continue educating themselves and others in both video production and broadband after the program is completed. Stipends and paid internships will be available.
