A $250 donation can assist youth in DIGITAL MEDIA. Provide youth with an opportunity to learn basic techniques in production and understand how to identify and operate production equipment. In addition to learning about production, students also are exposed to script writing and responsible for producing ACH News to keep our donors update in our YouTube Channel.
