ForWords Literacy Lab and Youth Scholarship Program

YSP students researched, wrote and filmed a variety of public service announcements and published How to Make a PSA. Some topics of the PSAs included gang violence, drunk driving, and child abuse.

The students learned what a PSA was and how to choose an audience and create an audience-specific ‘message’. They also created storyboards and scripts, used props, acted, directed, filmed, and edited the PSAs.
