Merger of Youth Media Nonprofits

YouthNoise¬†focused on empowering youth to have a voice on national and international issues through technology. Link Media ran a 24-hour television network dedicated to providing Americans with global perspectives on news, events and culture. The two organizations determined that Link¬†Media’s technology and news content could complement YouthNoise’s emphasis on activism, and that they could accomplish more together by encouraging youth civic engagement and community service through the integration of television, web and mobile technologies. Lodestar provided financial support for the merger of YouthNoise into Link Media.
