Mansfield Youth Voice (MY Voice) is open to Mansfield students in grades 5-8 who have an interest in learning how to create a multi-media publicity campaign and use their voice and perspective to make a difference in the community. This year’s media campaign focuses on the topic of vaping and youth cannabis use prevention.
This program is funded by the Local Prevention Council grant through SERAC (Supporting and Engaging Resources for Action and Change) and gives our young people a platform and skills to learn how to amplify their message to the community. This could include writing, filming, and editing a Public Service Announcement (PSA) video/sound byte, creating social media ready graphics, designing shirts/pins/masks or other swag with vaping and youth cannabis use prevention messages, learning about digital citizenship and their own digital footprints, and strategizing a plan to reach as many young people as possible.
They might even have to teach us how Tik Tok works.
Group meets at MMS room 113 (updated room assignment) on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month after school during regular club time. Groups will not meet on early dismissal days or Holidays. Students will be able to take the late buses home.
