Shaping Youth and Amy Jussel

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

Amy Jussel, founder of wrote about us today on her blog based on an interview we had. We are flattered. We have been so busy preparing for auditions we were blown away by her thoughtful and generous account of our project. You can read her article here

Here’s the blurb about her non-profit: Shaping Youth, a new nonprofit consortium of media and marketing professionals concerned about harmful messages to children. S.Y. uses tools & techniques of industry insiders to flip creative content in a healthier direction. Her counter-marketing workshops have been a huge hit with kids and adults alike and will launch to the public soon.

Parents, teachers and friends check out her wonderful blog! They promote a fantastic mission; we are so lucky to have people like Amy doing this type of work!
