Adobe Youth Voices Live 2010

On May 13th high school students from CISC’s after school program were selected to participate in the Adobe Youth Voices Live 2010 event at the Seattle International Film Festival Cinema in Seattle Center.  Over the course of several months the students worked with Adobe Premiere and Flash software to produce a short video entitled “Welcome to the USA”.  The video gives advice to new Chinese immigrants about what they can expect in the United States and features many CISC staff as well as other students from the after school program. 

Launched in June 2006, Adobe Youth Voices is the Adobe Foundation's global signature philanthropy program designed to provide youth in underserved communities with the critical skills they need to become active and engaged members of their communities and the world at large.  Thanks to Adobe, CISC is able to provide high tech video production training for new immigrant youth who would otherwise have limited or no access to professional production software.
