Community Minute: Helping youth create social change through media

Play associated audio

Gandhi Brigade is a nonprofit organization in Montgomery County, Md., which teaches youth to use media to promote social change. The organization offers a variety of programs where youth can hone their interests and skills alongside adults with professional media experience. The Gandhi Brigade began in the summer of 2005 for the purpose of preparing a new generation of leaders that would be equal to challenges of the Twenty First Century. Taking up Gandhi's challenge to form a "peace brigade" that trained for justice the way an army trains for war, the organization began teaching youth how to use video and other digital media as a tool to engage young people in the life of their community and to use the power of communication to transform the world.
