Building resiliency and healthy behaviors
Media has a significant impact on our youth’s health, behavior, social interactions and academic success . Learn how to teach children what they need to know about media so they can make healthy choices.
Children gain amazing benefits from interacting with media but they need to be aware of the potential negative effects from:
violent and inappropriate media
use interfering with sleep, studying or concentration
online bullying affecting mood and behavior
content impacting self-esteem
influences on behaviors: unhealthy eating, substance use and risky sexual behavior

Additionally, Media Power Youth received the New Hampshire 2016 Nonprofit Impact Award for our achievement in empowering youth to lead safe, healthy lives through smart use of media.
