Seen AND Heard

  1. Serving Young People of Various Backgrounds

  2. Preparing Young Creatives to Become Leaders Who Bring Positive Change to Mississippi

Challenging the “seen and not heard” ideology that undermines young people, this program encourages self-advocacy through literacy among young Mississippians of various backgrounds and age levels. The MLP partners with Mississippi schools and colleges to recruit students who are gifted writers, videographers, orators, photographers, and visual artists. Selected candidates receive training on multi-literacies and  multimodal texts, mentoring, and publishing opportunities.
