‘Ōlelo’s Youth Xchange E3 (Empower, Equip, Engage) after school media program is full of young producers eager to engage with the community through media. Throughout the course, students get hands on experience with the entire production process including organizing a script, operating cameras, editing footage, interviewing subjects on camera, and working with a crew. Take a look at some of the activities the youth around the island have been involved in with YXC E3:
