Roots Tv is a non-profit skills development program located in WA which offers digital film-making and video production workshops to youth facing multiple barriers from social to employment.
The targeted community are at risk youth. We use the term "at-risk" to define young people who show evidence of a combination of employment barriers that put them at risk of long-term unemployment and subsequent dependence on public funds for support either through the welfare system, the criminal justice system, and/or the health care system. Our solution is engaging the creative youth at risk.
Roots TV is also an exciting and fresh, community-based YouTube Channel, that provides a platform for community groups to connect with each other.
