Letters to the Next President

Letters to the Next President 2.0 supports educators in providing interest-driven opportunities to foster and encourage youth voice and civic engagement. The project provides resources, learning opportunities, and curriculum ideas that help educators leverage the excitement around a national election by engaging youth in the US with reading, writing, and media-making about issues that matter.

BAVC will be partnering with Letters to the Next President 2.0 in several ways: 

  • Emerging Mediamakers as part of their project-based learning (internship) will interview youth advisory board members at The Mix @ SFPL about their recommendations to the next president and/or create videos for KQED's nine issues/topics most important to the election (which will be examples of how people can be involved nationally). Final pieces shared on both KQED and BAVC's web page
  • GEARS students will do a show on SF Commons about Letters to the Next President (web link can be posted on both web pages).
  • BAVC's web instructor, Amy Li, will lead a national webinar hosted by KQED on how to make a related-thematic gif.
