Since then, YAM has enabled the production of over 100 short films and animations by young people, many award winning.

We teach young people both the technical skills to create digital films, animations, music and other multi media projects as well as presenting filmmaking as an art form and a tool to create positive change.

Many of our original members have gone on to become successful film directors or industry professionals and regularly act as mentors and volunteers for our ongoing projects.
