“THERE ARE 64 MILLION YOUTH UNEMPLOYED WORLDWIDE AND 145 MILLION YOUNG WORKERS LIVING IN POVERTY. youth employment remains a global challenge and a top policy concern” - INTERNATIONAL LABOUR ORGANIZATION (SEE REPORT)

“THE continued expansion of [COMMUNICATION] networks…together with the falling cost of access and devices, are enabling millions of people in the developing world to become producers of media content. These new “voices” serve people’s needs for entertainment, cultural enlightenment, and human contact…. with the explosion of new media opportunities, entirely new business models are being applied by unexpected new entrants who are challenging traditional businesses and their methodS.” - THE WORLD BANK (SEE REPORT)

II. MINOR ACT EMPOWERS VULNERABLE YOUTH (14-24) AROUND THE WORLD WITH THE SKILLS AND MINDSETS THEY NEED TO CREATE THEIR OWN FILMS, CONTENT VENTURES, AND MEDIA BRANDS FROM IDEA TO EXECUTION, DISTRIBUTION & MARKETING.

SIDE-BY-SIDE THE EXPLOITATIVE AGEISM THEY FACE ON DAILY BASIS, DEFECTIVE EDUCATION SYSTEMS, DEEP-SEATED SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC INEQUALITIES, AND THE PROSPECT OF PERPETUAL ENVIRONMENTAL CRISES ACROSS THEIR LIFETIMES, TODAY’S YOUTH, ALSO, HAVE MORE ACCESS TO AND POWER OVER THE GLOBAL COMMUNICATION & CONTENT DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM — EVEN IN THE MOST difficult AND REMOTE PLACES ON EARTH.
