"Selfies" | 'Youth Speaking Up' | Toronto Police Youth in Policing Initiative Student Public Service Announcements re: Teen Sexting
"Selfies" PSA Part 1 [1:15] & Part 2 [1:15]
'Youth Speaking Up' is a student advocacy and awareness public service campaign, produced by the Toronto Police Service's Youth in Policing Initiative (YIPI) program with Toronto Police Video Services.
The program is designed to challenge and empower students to create discussion and dialogue through creative content creation with their peers, around issues that are important them.
The 2014 edition of 'Youth Speaking Up' has created two PSAs that deal with the topic of teen sexting, and aims to create awareness of the dangers of sexting, while encourage students to think about the potential consequences of posting sexually explicit pictures and videos online.
These PSA videos were conceived, written, and acted by members of the the 2014 Toronto Police Youth in Police Initiative students with members of the Toronto Police Video Unit, in association with the Child Exploitation Section of the TPS Sex Crimes Unit.
The companion series of two PSAs both carry the message: "Be smart, be safe, and protect yourself online"
