The Rough Cut Review Toolkit provides strategies and resources useful for engaging young media makers in meaningful dialogue and exchange with peers through an activity called "Rough Cut Review." During the Rough Cut Review sessions, youth receive the constructive critical feedback they need to help them take their media work to the next stage of completion.
The Collaboration Toolkit provides strategies for engaging youth in collaborative media projects and exploring interests and perspectives between two or more communities of youth media makers. Facilitating this level of collaboration between youth from different locations offers educators the chance to promote global awareness and understanding. Throughout the Collaboration Toolkit selected youth media projects are referenced to watch and reflect on. This collection of youth media can be found on the Create with Purpose Vimeo Channel.
The Exhibition Toolkit can be used as a companion to any curriculum or project, to cultivate youth engagement and creativity throughout the different steps leading up to exhibition. The resources comprised in the toolkit illustrate strategies to bring youth works to a specific audience in meaningful ways. Educators will learn how to employ various tools to guide youth artists in the process of framing their message, refining their original media pieces, and sharing the work with an audience.
This Guide is for Educators to use in tandem with the AYV Career Toolkit. The Career Toolkit is a resource youth may use independently or with the guidance of an educator. The kit provides support, strategies, and activities for youth who are contemplating their career options and preparing for future opportunities.
This collection, including media produced by youth, builds on the curricula, toolkits, and stories created by the Adobe Youth Voices program.
Introduction to the Toolkit for Dart for Adobe Flash Professionnal CC.
Adobe Youth Voices is a great in depth program that takes educators and students through the process of creating multi-media with purpose. Adobe has now launched Adobe Youth Voices Essentials which makes many of the resources that are available to Youth Voices participants available to all.
The AYV Guide is intended to both orient and support educators who are planning and implementing creative media projects with young people. The Guide presents a vibrant road map for the learning experience and provides educators with planning tools, examples, and tips for launching and sustaining effective youth media programs. It encourages educators to develop their own approach, with inspiration from an array of instructional materials, embedded video tutorials, and sample youth works from around the globe. The practical ideas shared in this Guide, together with the teaching and learning resources from some of the best thinkers and artists in the field, will, we believe, prove to be an invaluable resource to educators working with young media artists.
Adobe Youth Voices is the Adobe Foundation's signature philanthropy initiative empowering young people to Create with Purpose. Youth use digital tools to express themselves about issues important to them.
The Adobe Youth Voices media making curriculum connects and resonates with the U.S.- based Common Core State Standards. A unique collaboration of educators and administrators developed the standards to reflect the various literacies necessary for college and career readiness. The Common Core also represents a vision of the skills and understandings to be expected of an educated, engaged citizen in the twenty-first century. This toolkit includes recommendations of best practices for effectively integrating Adobe Youth Voices curriculum and the Common Core Standards. These practices are organized into the following three important dimensions: InquiryCollaborationAuthentic Assessment In addition, the toolkit offers tools and resources that support and guide robust inquiry, effective collaboration, and authentic assessment.
This four-part toolkit is designed for educators who wish to lead change in their communities to unleash creativity on campus.

I came across this while I was looking for student contests to submit my class work into. Does anyone know if they will be doing the Adobe Youth Voices Contest for High School Students this year? I'm looking at the areas of Film, Graphic Design, Animation and Photography. Also are their any other contests that you are aware of? I know of the Art Institutes 2D3D Contests as well as Scholastic art and Writing Contest. Thanks

Drawing upon best practices in the youth media field, positive youth development principles, and the fundamentals of project based learning, the Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) training advances an educator-facilitated approach to youth media making that promotes social change. Adobe Youth Voices, was a ten year, philanthropic effort of the Adobe Foundation to increase creativity in education. The primary activity of the initiative was professional development for educators in both formal and informal settings to guide them in facilitating creative media-making experiences for young people. Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC) Adobe’s lead program partner for the initiative, developed this collection of training materials and resources to unify the program. This collection is now freely available and schools and community based organizations can use these materials to train and support educators interested in engaging young people in youth media making. The collection includes a Trainer Guide and four Training Modules. Each Training Module includes a training script with detailed instructions on how to facilitate training activities and prompts for discussion, presentation slides that correspond to activities detailed in the script, and a collection of handouts for use during the training as well as in instruction. The Create with Purpose Vimeo Channel hosts a collection of media referenced throughout the training.
