Try and understand what part you have to play in the world in which you live. There’s more to life than you know and it’s all happening out there. Discover what part you can play and then go for it”

-- Sir Ian McKellen

Washitaw Foothills Youth Media Arts & Literacy Collective tells the stories of our often forgotten history, making visible the hidden social determinants in our under resourced communities.
Instead of trying to "give our youth a voice," we work with them to provide the resources and tools necessary to harness, and then express, the innate power within their own voices.

Washitaw Foothills Youth Media Arts and Literacy Collective a community-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Pulaski County, Arkansas, that aims to challenge established thinking through hands-on, multimedia-based, experiential learning.

What we have done and continue to do

We partner with individuals, organizations, institutions, and governmental entities to increase the likelihood of opportunities for young people.

"There’s a gap somehow between empathy and activism. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of soul force, something that emanates from a deep truth inside of us and empowers us to act. Once you identify your inner genius, you will be able to take action, whether it’s writing a check or digging a well.”
