Youth Media Resources

Here is an introductory list of resources about children, teens and their relationships with media. This is a partial list, but its a start.

Non-Profit & Educational Organizations

The list below is composed of two kinds of organizations, those that reach out to youth and provide them with opportunities to express themselves through technology and those that study the impact of this opportunity on the lives of youth. All of them are presented here as models for replication.

The Community Technology Centers Network (US)

Schoolnet (Canada)

The Educational Development Center (US)

Compumentor (US)

Techsoup (US)

Web Sites

Here is a brief selection of sites for kids, demographic and marketing information.


The Kids Report

Kidscreen Magazine

Jupitor Communications Digital Kids Forum

The Internet Scout Project


These are books I read a long time ago (or worked on a long time ago), but I think they are still good primers for people just getting into the field.
