Since 2008, Youth In Motion has provided free LGBTQ themed movies, with accompnaying curricula and action guides, to student clubs and educators in middle and high schools. More than 500 schools registered over the past five years in the state of California, and we are pleased to announce the nationalization of Youth in Motion for the 2013-2014 school year!
Youth in Motion gives student activists and teachers interactive tools to educate their peers about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history and culture (and have fun doing it!). We believe that an inclusive curriculum is one step to creating truly safe and welcoming schools.
Youth in Motion’s DVD release, set to launch in February 2014, Insights: Queer Youth Defining Our Future includes short films representing a range of LGBT youth experiences—from authentic self-expression to classmate crushes to films that delve into the dangers of bullying. The collection comes with a Curriculum Guide so that teachers can use these films in their everyday teaching, as well as a fabulous Action Guide to help build student leadership and activist skills. There is a limited supply of this collection available free of charge, so please register as soon as possible!
In addition to our new title, California middle and high school student clubs still have access to our eight previous films, completely free of charge. Schools outside of California can also pre-register for our free new release, and can receive previous films from the Youth in Motion collection for just $25 each!

Youth in Motion is made possible in part with the generous support of:
Working to reduce bias-based bullying and violence in schools and to help schools better meet the needs of sexual minority youth and children with sexual minority parents/guardians.
