Annotation: Youth Initiatives Program of the Open Society Institute runs this site to encourage youth to engage in media activities. The site has no narratives or reactions of its own, but it provides links to websites in three categories that cater to youth. There are links to sites that offer youth perspectives on September 11, links to media organizations soliciting pieces from young people, and a list of resources for helping to cope with the attacks.
Excerpt: Giving young people, particularly less advantaged youth, a forum to report on their world and their experiences is at the heart of the Open Society Institute's Youth Media Program. In the wake of the horrific events of Tuesday September 11, 2001, it is even more important to include these young people's thoughts, reactions and perspectives in the public discourse.
