Youth Conference: ME and the MEdia

What’s really going on behind the images you see on your smart phone, iPad, in movies or on billboards?  What are they trying to sell you?
Critical thinking and media literacy is one of the best tools to help make sense of these images.

Join the YMCA for Me and the MEdia: Advancing Youth Media Literacy, the YWCA’s second annual youth conference on December 7 (10am to 3pm at UBC Robson Square) to continue discussions about media literacy and help you to take ownership of online identities.
