Goals and Objectives

Everyone has a unique perspective on the world and the ability to share it with the rest of us. This individuality is what we want you to bring.

No matter if you are a nerd or a drag queen, you already are what the world wants to see.

In this Youth Exchange, we will embrace our oddness and create videos to discover our authentic selves, as well as empower others to do the same.

Abroadship.org is inviting you to Young Audiovisual project. It is a three-phase project in which you will have the opportunity to learn how to make promotional videos without the need for expensive equipment, as well as to learn and experiment with others on how to use video to build your own brand.

“Sometimes, being different feels a lot like being alone. But with that being said, being true to that and being true to my standards and my way of doing things in my art and my music, everything that has made me feel very different…in the end, it has made me the happiest.” – Lindsey Stirling
