YLCC Media is an organization that is devoted to empowering today’s youth to reach their full potential, by connecting with and educating students through engaging and relevant visual media and films.
Our films highlight issues and challenges that are relevant to young people. Whether that is bullying, mental health issues, making good decisions, finding the right friends, or successfully making it through one of the transitional stages of life such as the transition from elementary school to high school…we will likely make a film about it! To keep current and cutting-edge, we produce and release a new film each year. New films premiere in the springtime with a school board and media event, followed by a nationwide release in September, aligned with the start of each new academic year.
Workshop Description for “Rising Above”
Rising Above is an engaging 90-minute documentary film that sheds light on the issue of bullying within our schools and communities. It tells the stories of ten Canadians who have either been the targets of bullying or a person who bullied others in the past – their stories of hope, growth and courage in overcoming and rising above the challenges they faced.
