Youth Entertainment Studios teamed this summer
with the Norfolk and Portsmouth, Virginia Court Service Units to
work with twenty-three court-involved teens in a three-week residential
camp experience on the campus of Old Dominion University in Norfolk,
In addition to learning all about the music industry
and gaining hands-on production experience, the young people learned
conflict resolution, media literacy, job skills and life skills.
The camp was co-sponsored by the Grammy Foundation and radio station
Norfolk and Portsmouth Virginia Court Service
Units teamed up with YES this summer to help turn around teens who
are already in the court system!
The teens presented the music and music videos
they produced at a special award celebration that rivaled the Grammy
Awards in anticipation and excitement.
