The Ad Idem Foundation exists to provide historically disadvantaged youth and families with knowledge and training in business/economics, politics, law enforcement, media, and traditional learned subjects (e.g. math, science, language/literature) for the purpose of transforming neighborhoods into communities of trust, cooperation, and accountability.
Our Youth in Media Program serves the media component of Ad Idem Foundation.
Our Institute is a comprehensive broadcast journalism program for children ages 12 through 19 in Indianapolis. This education is essential in today’s media-saturated world, where the ability to create, produce and publish quality content is paramount. Youth In Media provides active broadcast professionals as instructors affording students the most accurate industry standards and practices through curriculum and hands-on training so that this historically underrepresented population can be academically and professionally competitive.
Our Institute is doing great work with youth in our city through this program. Would you consider donating to this cause? We are always in need of your help to feed the children during their time with us, to purchase more cameras, lights, mics, computers, software, supplies, etc! The more we have, the more children we can serve. In-kind donations are also welcome. To donate in-kind, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Our Scholarship Program serves to ensure that youth in media can pay for tuition, fees, and housing to obtain their education in all areas that support broadcast journalism.
