This project is a youth-produced documentary about how we can all make our daily lives more green.
Located at Sam Brannan Middle School, this support program focuses on linking kids between present day and their futures.
This media project was inspired and excerpted from the movie ‘Remember The Titans.’ The featured speech taught us about leadership, teamwork, and to equally look at each other. We hope that the community will see this, and will explore new thoughts and ideas to create a better outcome in the future.
This media project informs people about the cons of buying fruit or vegetables at grocery stores and the pros of buying fruits and vegetables at a Farmers’ Markets.
How do you define beauty? Based off of an essay, three girls wrote and developed this concept on how we define beauty. Is the physical appearance of a person the only thing that will define them as beautiful?
Following on the success of the May 7, 2011 Second Annual Youth Media Forum for Social Change hosted by the Sacramento Bee, the “Neighborhood News Bureau” Project continues our momentum with new people, new equipment,
and new help from Sacramento Press.
NEW EQUIPMENT — A new HD Sony camcorder with tripod, two microphones, and XLR audio connectors will be demonstrated to the library staff at the Valley Hi – North Laguna Library. Once they are comfortable, this equipment will also be available for use by the Library staff for recording guest authors and also by the other 4 NNB partner organizations for special projects, documentary filmmaking, and capturing events. The camera is very professional but also light-weight and easy to use.
NEW STAFF SUPPORT — Please welcome Isaac Gonzalez to the NNB team. Isaac is an especially gifted writer, journalist, videographer, and social media advocate. He is being trained on the many ways data can be created and distributed via www.AccessLocal.tv and once he’s comfortable, he will be meeting with each of the five NNB sites at least twice per month. Isaac recently won the “Best Local Story” prize from Sacramento Press. He cares deeply about Sacramento and the opportunities presented by the NNB Project. When applying for this opportunity, Isaac explained, “I believe that giving citizens the means to produce independent and local content is extremely beneficial to a healthy and vibrant society. I have found producing online content to be an extraordinarily rewarding experience, as an artist, as a writer, as a socially engaged community advocate.”
Access Sacramento will be contacting each NNB partner next week to set-up a regular schedule of after-school help sessions with Isaac helping to both create new media and helping to post new media on the AccessLocal.tv web site.
NEW INTERN HELP FROM SACRAMENTO PRESS —
Access Sacramento Board member and Managing Editor for Sacramento Press, Colleen Belcher, works with an average of six journalist interns each semester. In an effort to generate more human interest stories from underserved neighborhoods, Sacramento Press will work with NNB organizations and Access Sacramento to identify local families with interesting stories to tell or organizations making a difference in their larger communities. Our goal will be the creation of one intern created story per month from each of the NNB sites. Local media too often publishes only crime stories about South Sacramento. This new internship effort will feature the hard working folks and resourceful community groups who successfully raise their children and live productive lives but whose stories are overlooked. Each story will be simultaneously published in Sacramento Press and AccessLocal.tv. We thank SacPress.com and Colleen for their continuing support of the NNB Project and for this creative approach to telling uniquely Sacramento stories.

First Class Studio is an after school breakdance class comprised of 7th and 8th graders. The purpose of this video is to promote health and fitness through breakdancing. We hope that fellow community members see that breakdancing is a competitive sport and would want to start their own dance groups.
This video is about the Summer of Service in the Sacramento City Unified School District. Where young people got the opportunity to do hands on projects rather than sitting in their classrooms reading a book! The SCUSD Summer of Service was an exciting 6-week program that gave youth the privilege of helping out in their community by providing youth with service learning opportunities addressing environmental and disaster preparedness.
