Imagine this...breakfast in London, lunch in Morocco, and dinner in South Africa. You can do this and more through the global community of YouTube.Teens in Columbia, South Carolina are discovering that they don't only have to be consumers, but can be creators of this original content.

To foster these experiences we have developed My World, a unique programming series that teaches and empowers teens to create original visual art using new media. The hope is that this leads to career paths and hands-on learning opportunities that will open the world both locally and globally for teens.
