HITN is partnering with Brooklyn District Attorney’s Bureau of Youth Diversion and Initiatives to create Digital Storytelling – a digital storytelling and social media literacy initiative designed to address the negative effects of cyber-bullying.

The goal of this Digital Storytelling campaign is to tackle cyber-bullying by assisting teenagers in creating short films that share their individual experiences and those of their peers. At the center of this initiative is an app designed to produce short videos and allows them to be shared via social media with peers, educators, and family members to help make their voices heard and promote powerful, real world impact. The app was created by DIYdoc, a smartphone app production company with a mission to enable young teens to create high quality films through the ease of inexpensive smartphones.
