Youth 2011


These PSAs were produced during a six-week internship by youth from the Philadelphia Urban Food and Fitness Alliance, or PUFFA. The PUFFA Youth combined everything they had learned in four-weeks of nutrition and healthy living education, to create short, engaging videos that would connect with their peers, explaining the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle. These videos will play on LCD monitors in school cafeterias all throughout the city for the 2011-2012 school year. Watch videos »

After School

Students in the afterschool program produced documentaries about a range of topics including youth perspectives on adulthood, the role of arts education in schools, and how food trucks are being transformed by social media. At once thoughtful, creative, irreverent, these videos showcase what is on the minds of these youth.Watch videos »
