Media Influences Youth
Since Covid there has been a 75% increase of media usage among youth. Many young people see themselves through the lens of negative media which results in low self-esteem, depression, anxiety and even suicide. To bring awareness and help combat these problems KVC teaches youth media literacy.
We inspire children to learn, think, dream, create and communicate through the study and application of video production disciplines and techniques. One of the core concepts of media literacy is: “All media messages are constructed.” KVC trains our students to be positive content creators.
Media literacy is defined as the ability to analyze, understand, evaluate, access and create media. We teach youth media literacy to help them develop critical thinking skills and empower them with the knowledge and tools to make wiser media choices.

KVC has been a great asset to me, and I am grateful for its continued support. With Mrs. Johnson’s guidance and video expertise, at age 15, I was inspired to be a forward-thinking teen and set goals which resulted in me graduating as a first-generation college graduate from Georgia State University (GSU) with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Film/Video. KVC not only helped me prepare and plan for a future in media but provided me tools and a creative outlet to look at life positively.”
